This might not involve real estate but it's an event in my area and I will be performing with them. Every so often, we have to take a break to maintain balance in our life. Real estate business is so stressful that we need to turn the other way sometimes just to recharge. I'm taking a break from real estate for one afternoon and be a part of this Great Performances. Who knows? I might get a lead there.

It was started 17 years ago and at one point its membership was about 280 singers. I'm one of the founding members. They have performed outside Rockville Centre, at the Basilica of Immaculate Conception and at St. Matthew's Cathedral in Washington, DC, at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City, other churches in Delaware, Philadelphia, Boston, & Montreal. They have also performed three times at Tilles Center for fundraising events and also performed Lessons and Carols during the Christmas Season at the Seminary of Immaculate Conception in Lloyd Harbor, NY.
