A Message from Nova Singers President John List

"Nothing on earth is so well-suited to make the sad merry, the merry sad, to give courage to the despairing, to make the proud humble, to lessen envy and hate, as music."  - Martin Luther (1483-1546)

Music is indeed a powerful art with the ability to forge a family from a group of people with diverse backgrounds, professions, religions, ages, aspirations and interests. For that's what the members of Nova Southeastern University Singers are . . . a family brought together by a common love of music. For almost 30 years, the Nova Singers have had the privilege and joy of sharing their love of music with audiences throughout Southeastern Florida and beyond. We've sung in such celebrated venues as Carnegie Hall, Esterhazy Palace , Lees-McRae College , and the National Cathedral as well as on the campus of Nova Southeastern University .

Our evolution into South Florida 's foremost community chorus has been fueled by several key factors, including the continued support of Nova Southeastern University (NSU). We are proud to be affiliated with this outstanding educational institution and deeply appreciate NSU's support. The affiliation with NSU is yet another crucial aspect of the Nova Singers.

Our audiences are unsurpassed for their support, their enthusiasm and their dedication. Every year we are pleased to welcome back long-time listeners and to make the acquaintance of new supporters.
The selfless service provided by so many dedicated Singers over the years has enabled the group to prosper. Individuals donate time, energy and talent not only to rehearsals and performances, but to critical behind-the-scenes tasks such as maintaining our extensive music library, securing concert venues, overseeing financial details and coordinating communication between members.

Nova Singers' inspiration and task master! has always been Peggy Joyce Barber. Indeed, the group was launched during an in-home meeting between this long-time choral director and former members of her Stranahan Singers. Peggy truly brings out the best in her Singers.

Our future looks great as we prepare for exciting times together! Our calendar for this year features some outstanding concert sites with a repertoire offering long-time favorites and new pieces. A 30th anniversary excursion to Italy with concerts in Rome as the highlight is on the docket for 2006.

We invite you to join us . . . as a Singer, audience member, and supporter. You'll be enriched by the experience just as I have been for the past 24 years. Thank you!
