    Why I Sing With ADC

    I’ve sung with many school choirs, church choirs, and community choruses. But, I sing with the ADC to be challenged as a musician, not only by the repertoire that we perform together but by the rigor and artistry that is expected of me individually. The music that we create as an ensemble restores my soul and renews my spirit. I come home from rehearsals a better wife, mother, daughter, sister, co-worker, and friend.
