Marsha Toma from Whitestone says:
Thanks for posting a photo from our performance (OSQ, Dec. 18, 2011). I am privileged to sing with this historic group (85th year in existence). And I can't say this often enough; our Maestro IS Oratorio; he is the reason we have achieved exceptional quality for several decades. We are all dedicated singers, but Maestro Close is a true genius in every sense of the word (with exceptional people skills), and his wife, LeeAnn (our Treasurer), a musician, as well as a Financial expert, together with our talented and effervescent President Patty DiCiccio-Franke make the magical combination that results in a full house every winter concert. You won't want to miss our Spring concert; it is sure to be spectacular, it always is!
