Evening with Elektra

8:30 PM June 10th, 2006 at

This short concert was presented as the focal point of a fundraising event. Thank you for being part of this special evening. It is a chance for us to share with you the year’s highlights and our hopes for Elektra Women’s Choir next year when we celebrate our twentieth season.

Tonight also marks the launch of our eighth CD, Sacred Places. A recording which is ‘quintessentially Elektra’ and available in the study at Hycroft. The net proceeds from Evening with Elektra provide critical financial resources for the choir. Thank you for supporting our mission to inspire and lead in the choral art form through excellence in performance and the creation, exploration, and celebration of women’s repertoire. Sincerely, Morna and Diane
