Regent Joy Martin and the entire chapter are delighted to continue a Holiday tradition provided by the Maine South Vocal Jazz Ensemble, an extra-curricular group of vocalists under the direction of Mr. Matthew Hanes. The group rehearses three days a week at 6:45 AM and enjoys a busy performance schedule with concerts at Maine South and in the surrounding communities. The ensemble is very versatile, but focuses on vocal jazz repertoire: swing, blues, and ballad. They will present "Christmas in Song" for our joyful Holiday program. Please bring non-perishable and/or canned goods to the meeting for the Niles Food Pantry.
