Stephanie Wilson's curator insight, March 13, 2014 2:37 PM

This young lady's tale of her dream to become a Choral Director and Music Educator mirrors my heart and soul.  I can relate to the feeling that she feels to being part of a large choir with people from all walks of life and how everyone becomes a sort of family as they sing and harmonize together.  I found it intriguing that there is someone that takes videos from all around the world to put together a virtual choir.  The fact that technology has grown to be able to do such things is mind blowing!  Like Haylee Abney, I plan to learn and absorb all I can from every professor I will have the pleasure of working with.  To be able to put forth the knowledge and practices in to good use.
