Once again, Eric Adams, the Borough President of Brooklyn, visited GCB on June 3rd at the annual Patron's Party hosted by the chorale to honor their generous donors and supporters. The cocktail evening took place at the home of chorus member Didi Rick and her husband Barry Sheck and, in addition to a lively crowd of chorale boosters, included the GCB Board of Directors and Musical Director Jason Asbury and Assistant Director Matthew Henning.
Welcomed by chorale President Eliza Hicks, the Borough President gave a rousing call in support of music in Brooklyn, and expressed his fervent belief that arts organizations like GCB help to affirm Brooklyn's identity as an artistic mecca within the greater city of New York.
Jason Asbury spoke eloquently of the chorale's programs and ambitions for the upcoming year. All in all, the evening was filled with good spirit, good food, good banter and good support for the chorale. Thanks again to everyone who makes our singing possible.
