My mother Nancy first joined SingersMarin because she enjoyed singing so much and missed not being a part of a group. That was over 20 years ago and she still continues to sing with the other ladies in Wings of Song while also assiting with wardrobe for each session. It was through my Mom that I became the office assistant at SingersMarin. Both the women and men of SingersMarin have become my second family. After having worked in the office world for many years, I love to come here help out in anyway I can! It is an absolute joy to come in and each day is full of different tasks. It has been amazing to watch this organization continually grow and I am proud to be part of it!

I joined Singers Marin women's choir Wings of Song to sing in their holiday concert. I love to sing, but have had no formal training and was a bit nervous about joining. I was welcomed the first time I came in and was hooked up with a buddy to answer my questions and give me support. My experience was enhanced when we started singing for nursing homes and retirement communities when people would hold my hand and tell me I made their day after they heard us sing.

I joined the chorus after the death of my husband when I needed to feel alive again. The chorus gave me a new beginning. That was 9 years ago.

It is magical to see faces light up as the residents in the nursing homes remember our music. Sometimes they sing with us. I feel we are making their day a little brighter. It certainly brightens my day to sing for them.

I have experience the beauty and value that SingersMarin brings to our community throughout Marin County. The first time I heard those girls sing it inspired me to become involved as a member of their board for which I participated for a number of years. Through their singing people can connect with a purpose which is displayed on every one of their faces. It touches the soul and brings meaning to their (and our) lives. I will always be thankful that they are out there bringing this gift to us all.
