The Joyful Noise River Choir

On January 25, 2011 our choir was honored to perform for the East Tennessee Foundation's annual meeting at the Foundry in Knoxville, Tennessee. The River received funding through the Harris Family Fund of Washington County which is a part of the East Tennessee Foundation. The ladies sang for 45 minutes and were treated to an amazing lunch, too. It was a very special day for all of us!!
