Musical Thanksgiving!

I am so thankful to have spent the last month dancing and singing with Longmont kids.  On November 8, I got the chance to work as a clinician with over 375 students during the Saint Vrain Elementary Choir Festival organized by the fabulous Jennifer Ordway and Camilla Johnson.  They did a fantastic job putting the event together and created some wonderful musical memories for so many children and their families!

I'm also enjoying singing with a new group of young children in my 'Sing Your Heart Out" class through the Longmont Recreation Services. The Creation Station is a wonderful facility and it's great to have the place to ourselves to sing at the top of our lungs!   Because we aren't meeting during this holiday week, I shared one of my favorite turkey songs with them and thought you'd enjoy it too. Happy Thanksgiving!

Heather Stenner

Heather Stenner has a passion for life! Her passions play out with music and children of all ages. Heather grew up in the Midwest and realized the importance of each day from a very young age. Her mother was diagnosed with a brain tumor when Heather was only 5. The doctors gave her mother 6 months to live. It was during the next 15 years that Heather developed her charismatic and joyful course for her own life! Her mother showed her strength and courage and an intense compassion for others and their suffering. Her mother passed away when Heather was 20 years old. Heather vowed she would continue to live each day as if it were her last. To treat people with compassion and believe in the love we all share for one another. At the age of 37, she became an orphan. Her father passed away from pancreatic cancer. Through it all, Heather realized that MUSIC was one of her coping mechanisms to deal with all the stress that cancer brought into their families lives. She vowed to share her love of music with children, so that it might also be a positive force in their lives! To this day, Heather creates music that has soul and passion. She hopes everyone will remember with the dawning of each day; we are all musical. Feel it in your soul. Keep it to yourself... or give it away.
