    Hi Frances:
    Is it too late to be added to the class this Sat. morning in Mechanicsburg? If it is ok, I am one of your gluten free students, can only have rice flour or almond flour. I was not able to open a registration icon …not on my computer, so went the roundabout way here. may I pay you upon arrival?

    There is an email change listed below.

    Thank you,
    Audrey 717-743-6855

  2. Frances,
    Wow!! Thank you so much for making a guest appearance during the National Christian Choir concert on October 7 at Christ Community Church. Concert goers are still contacting me and raving about your performance. I heard, “Awesome! Excellent! Incredibly talented…, ” and of course, I agreed! Your performance was outstanding!!!!!! I absolutely can’t wait for this year’s “Portraits of White” concert! If that concert is anything like your performance with the NCC, then everyone attending is in for a real treat!!! ( :
    Thank you again!
    Blessings to you,
    Steph Coulson

    • Thanks so much Stephanie! I was honored to be a part of such a fabulous event. I’m glad to hear of such good reports! Music should lift our spirits and inspire us and I am delighted when Thai happens at any type of concert I am privileged to be a part of.
