When SWAN voice teacher, Heidi Shannon, took the stage for our December concert at The Trust, her audience was transported into the Christmas season with songs of faith, hope and love. She was then joined in performance by Xun Pan, concert pianist. Together, they dramatically touched every person in the audience with their musical artistry. They also touched us with their generosity as they devoted precious time and talent to benefit SWAN with this concert.
The evening was a great celebration of joy and beauty but the concert could not have ended without a song from our SWAN students. Stepping up to the challenge the children confidently walked on stage for an audience that filled the hall. They sang together with the Chamber Singers from Lancaster Bible College and Ms. Shannon. Their finale was met with an exuberant applause that I am quite certain still echoes in their hearts.
