Dear Parents, Alumni, Staff and other Friends of the AOSFYC,
What a thrill it is to be joining the State Fair team as the Director of the All-Ohio State Fair Youth Choir! Since 1963, the AOSFYC has given the youth of our state the opportunity to grow – interpersonally, culturally, vocally and musically. I am humbled and excited to serve these youth, our communities and our state in this life-changing way, building upon the standard of excellence that has been established by all of those that have faithfully served before and by those that continue to do so.
Hello All Alumni and Friends,
As the President of the All Ohio State Fair Youth Choir Alumni Association, I wanted to post a special letter to all of you.
It has come to our attention that the CDs and DVDs of the 2013 Closing Concert have not yet been distributed. It is also our understanding that the CDs will be mailed in the near future. DVDs will also be mailed in a timely manner once an audio error has been corrected. Please accept our apology for the oversight. If you have questions, please feel free to contact us via the website, and we will be sure to forward your inquiry to the appropriate staff for follow-up. Thank you for your patience.
When the Cardinal Chorale toured England, France, and Wales in the summer of 1998, one Sunday morning we crossed the Bristol Channel to Wales. We visited Chepstow Castle and Tintern Abbey, and that afternoon sang to visitors at Llandaff Cathedral.
As part of our process of cleaning up and migrating our distribution list, we have a number of Alums who have changed over email addresses and left their old ones behind without updating it.
As many of you are aware, the celebration of our fiftieth anniversary is being celebrated over two years. The celebration began this past summer with the Choir’s 50th year at the Fair, and will continue as we celebrate the “calendar anniversary” – 1963-2013 – this coming summer.
