Note from a Choral Director:
It was a pleasure to work with Yvonne on the Choralography of Alberto Grau's 'La Arestinga' in preparation for our performance at the 2009 National ACDA Convention in Oklahoma City. She very quickly taught the moves for the selection in one rehersal to the concert choir, some of whom who had never moved before in a concert setting. After the first day the final two days were spent in careful review and refinement. Three weeks later we were ready for the convention due in no small part to the innovative and organic work of Yvonne Farrow.

Respectfully,

Richard Bjella
