#MDAppreciationWeek19: Thank you, Sarah!

by | 21 Nov 2019 | Celebration | 0 comments

Mayflower A Cappella Chorus cherish our Music Director, Sarah Gill.

We, ladies of Mayflower A Cappella Chorus (based in Plymouth, UK), feel very fortunate to have the wonderfully gregarious, Sarah Gill, as our frontline director. Sarah inspires us to be the best singers we can be. Her boundless energy and enthusiasm is infectious and her never ending optimism and encouragement is priceless. She has a wicked sense of humour too which can make the dreariest of Mondays sparkle.

Sarah has an hour-long round trip to reach us every Monday night, very rarely missing a rehearsal, even managing to bound in with a smile on the same day she flew in from New Orleans! That’s dedication!

In these times of busy, busy, busy, we would like her to know how much she is loved and appreciated.

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.
