Don had not sung since grade 4 and was now approaching retirement with a notion of doing something musical. He didn't read music, but was willing to learn. During a Cantorion Fall Open House, Don showed up to observe the choir during one of its practices. Not allowed to just observe, he was put next to tenor Eddie for the evening. Eddie showed Don the ropes and encouraged him along. Don became a member when he retired the following year. After just two practices, Don asked Judy Brown, the choir director at that time, if she thought he was ready to contribute to an upcoming concert. Judy's reply, "You're ready, I didn't hear anything awful coming from your direction!" Supportive, encouraging, fun - Cantorion Values.
