I love singing with the Elm Ensemble.
One of the best parts of singing with the Elm Ensemble is raising money for good causes, which is a part of the Evensongs I've participated in. As part of the April 2019 Evensong a freewill collection was taken for the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) chapter in Washtenaw County, where the Elm Ensemble is based.
The collection was quite awesome that day.
The NAMI Washtenaw County has received $417 from the freewill offering that day! That's outstanding!
We also took a photo of the ensemble together, which you can see below. This is a wonderful group of people who sing well. It's a beautiful thing to be a part of the generosity of the St. James community.
It's like we all wore all black on purpose!
