Such a success


To the Editor:

I thank all the people who were so helpful in making the Minnesingers’s recent performance tour to Prague and Paris such a success.

Thanks to the Minnesingers’s parents’ group for their two years of effort in fundraising, to the generosity of the Island community.

Thanks to the team that traveled with us, to stage manager Jeff Caruthers, choreographer Lianna Loughmann, accompanist John Gorman, chaperone John Wightman, and parents Nancy Nevin and Cheryl Lowe.

Also, many thanks to the teachers and staff at the high school for their patience and support. Through their performances and behavior, the Minnesingers were excellent musical ambassadors, not only for Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School and the Island, but also for America.
