LAB XVI now numbers 21 singers from around the Bay Area, coming from as far away as Sacramento, San Jose, and Santa Rosa.  Today they spent their 3rd day in a row singing for six hours.  Their leader today was Chanticleer Music Director Fred Scott.  We salute their enthusiasm and their work ethic, and look forward to hearing them soon.  Tomorrow we go back to putting the final touches on "My Secret Heart" and "Washing of the Water" to take out on the road.  We're also getting a program together to perform with Cantus in Minneapolis on October 3.   We'll do Christmas for the first time at Spivey Hall in Atlanta ( home of Fred) and in San Diego.  But we're getting ahead of ourselves.  See you soon.
