“As we prepare for our 25th Anniversary season it’s difficult not to reflect back over the years. Donor support has been the cornerstone of our continued growth – and we thank everyone who has supported us over these years. It is interesting to note our first scholarship recipient, William Bennett, is now teaching in the area. Even more interesting, some of his students are now scholarship recipients. I hope we all see this as an excellent return on investment. Again, many thanks from the chorus and many thanks for the students who have been helped along the way.” –Bob Brennan, CMC Board President.
