Singing!! I started singing in church choirs at age 10. Next were the Minneapolis Southwest High School choirs, the Minneapolis Choralaires, a small chorus for the ‘Merchant of Venice’ at the Guthrie, and a six-singer/dancer show group that performed at such places as business conventions, county fairs, and supper clubs. The Twin City Community Gospel Choir was a new experience. We learned by singing with no sheet music. That choir provided an opportunity to sing with the African American Heritage Chorale at a week-long international music festival, in Chaturanga, in Switzerland.
