Mariana Aldridge, Board Vice-President

I first heard about the choir from a friend who had been a singer. I had attended several of her concerts and was always left feeling blown away by the performances and the sense of community. After some time, she invited me to join the choir to my response was, "I don't know how to sing". She said, "just come". Since joining, I have learned so much about singing and have developed friendships with a wonderful, loving group of singers. Outside of choir, some of my favorite activities are cooking, gardening, and watching movies.

Marty McClelland, Board Past-President

I joined my voice with the kind hearted warriors of CWC in the spring of 1993. When I am not singing, you might find me on the golf course, or reading a novel, or watching birds, or on an adventure with my wife Debbie or some of our eight grandchildren. I am an NCCU Professor Emerita of Computer Information Systems.
