Dear Detroit Children’s Choir Community,
Due to the untimely and unexpected sudden resignations of both our Executive Director and Artistic Director during the week of April 24, 2023, the Board of Directors of the Detroit Children’s Choir made the difficult decision to cancel our Spring Concert which had been scheduled for May 10, 2023. While disappointing not only to us as a Board, but also to the over 200 children in our seven choirs, we felt this was the most prudent decision and in the best interest of the organization, having been suddenly left with no lead professional staff.
Given these unexpected and unforeseen resignations, the Board of Directors has voted to pause the Choir’s operations, while we determine how best to move the program and the mission of the organization forward, while maintaining true to the children we serve.
We thank all of you for the support you have shown our program and our children over the years. We look forward to providing you with an update on our plans for the organization in the coming weeks and months.
Judith Runk, Chairperson
Detroit Children’s Choir Board of Directors
