#MDAppreciationWeek19: Thank you, Lynda!
Lynda Wood, our Musical Director of Phoenix Chorus for over 30 years! Lynda is the heart and soul of Phoenix. Without her passion, hard work, determination and zeal the chorus would not have experienced the success that it has, both in its time in Ladies Association of British Barbershop Singers and Sweet Adelines International Region 31. Lynda has mentored hundreds of singers passing through Phoenix’s door – she has been a friend to every one of them – helping and encouraging them throughout their journey with the chorus. This amazing lady gives so generously of her time and talent guiding and encouraging her friends to musical achievements that few of us ever dreamed we would be capable of. Exacting, yet humorous and understanding, Lynda brings the very best out of all of us and in turn we strive to do our very best for her. Lynda Wood, you are our driving force and we are all proud to be a part of your chorus, Phoenix!
17-23 November 2019 has been designated as the Music Director Appreciation Week by the Quartet of Nations Region 31 of Sweet Adelines International. Throughout the week, members of the choruses in this region have been expressing their gratitude to the person, the "arm wavers", who stands in front at every rehearsal.
Everyone is encouraged to show their appreciation for their own music directors by posting their own message on social media and using the hashtag #MDAppreciationWeek19.
