The very hard working LAB XIII concluded its season tonight with a wonderful and much appreciated performance at St. Augustine's Catholic Church in Pleasanton. Darita came along to support them.    



  LAB XIII's main project was to be the lab choir for our National Youth Choral Festival in March - helping Ragnar Bohlin work with the visiting choir directors and in doing so learning a lot about the flexibility needed to sing under different conductors.  XIII also workshopped music of the finalists in our Student Composer Competition.  There are a number of LAB veterans in this group, with Toran Davenport in the lead.  He's participated in 8 sessions and XIII was his last.  He's now singing with the S.F. Symphony Chorus.   Many members of LAB XIII are going on to college all over the country, from Mt. Holyoke Mass, to Vancouver, and colleges in the Bay Area and elsewhere.   We wish them well, hope they keep singing, and hope we'll see them along the way.
