Kenny Smith is the Music Director at the church I attend, First Unitarian Church of Cincinnati. He also directs "Peace and Serenity," a local gospel choir, and is a former student at CCM. He's sung with the Cinti Opera, May Festival Chorus, Vocal Arts Ensemble, and the MLK Chorale (Freedom Center Choir). We love Kenny. He's a great guy. -Tom Sandman

Dear John,
Erin McCambley is the youngest member at 19 and will attend Balwin Wallace in the fall. She has a professional CD out called Luminous and her mother, Sherry McCambley, is a performer in town (most recently Nunsense with Pat Linhardt, Patti James, Shelly Bamburger and are looking to do Menapause, the Musical together - sounds like fun).

Christy Ledden the daughter of Paul and Pam Ledden. is orginally from Northern Kentucky, Hebron. Her family lived in Mason Ohio for several years where she attended and graduated from Mason High School. She is currently a student at Miami University in Oxford where she majors in music "voice".
She toured this past summer in Europe with a group from the US as did her brother John who played in the Orchestra. Some of your readers may have been serenaded by her at the Macaroni Grill in Mason where she worked singing in Italian. She is an amazing young lady with great talent and a great future in music. Cinncinati is well represented by this beautiful young lady.
