Dear Singing Angel Alumni and Parents,
The Singing Angels were a safe haven for all of us when we were children. From the band members to the athletes, from the popular to the nerdy - we all found a common place where all those labels were wiped away and we were one united group known as the Singing Angels.
During the 90's, an '86 graduate of the Singing Angels, Joe Morin, became our Music Director. He was an instrumental part of our experience with the Singing Angels during this time. He taught us how to perfect our sound and bring out the best in us. Unfortunately, he was abruptly dismissed in the late 90's/early '00 and there was a lot of controversy surrounding the dismissal.
As many of you know, it is the 50th anniversary of the Singing Angels. There are many events surrounding this celebratory year. All the great Music Directors of the past were invited back to conduct, all but one, and that was Joe Morin. So many people, including Joe, were shocked by this and sadly, many people may not attend the festivities because they feel so strongly about this.
We are asking each one of you to take the time to consider signing this petition to ask the current board to reconsider asking Joe to come back and conduct at Spring Concert. We have heard that the show is set and that it cannot be changed at this point, but there is always a disclaimer at every program that the 'Program is Subject to Change'. Let this be the opportunity for things to be made right and for the olive branch to be extended. If the Singing Angel board members choose to pretend that Joe did not exist, then most of the 90's didn't exist and that is wrong. Joe is not only a former Music Director, but a fellow alumnus. It would be like our brother not being invited to our family reunion.

Let this be OUR opportunity to 'Make a Difference' as we have already 'Made Music' and 'Made Friends'.

Thank you for your time and consideration!
