My name is Abigail Clarke, I am graduating from Manzano high school and have been a member of the cathedral choir/chorister program for eleven years. Next year I will be attending Regis University in Denver Colorado. I plan on majoring in Environmental Science or Biology with a minor in music. I will also be running Cross Country for the Regis Rangers. I am continuing my choir experience at Regis and will be involved in their music program.
I would like to thank the congregation for supporting me and the Cathedral music program. I am grateful that the Cathedral encouraged me to attend many Royal School of Church Music courses and tour with the Cathedral Choir. These extraordinary experiences helped me further my passion for music and develop as an individual. I am privileged to be a part of such a welcoming community. I would also like to thank members of the Cathedral music program for providing me with a high level of music education and sharing their expertise. They have helped me find a place of joy that has brought me peace and helped me discover my spirituality. The gifts I’ve received from the Cathedral as a whole have made a profound impact on my life.
