Last week saw us in Pittsburgh to visit my in-laws and to celebrate my mother-in-law's retirement concert from the Pittsburgh Camerata which she has directed for the past 18 years.
She has advanced the group in many ways and has done much good for the singers. She excels at creative programming and goes where many will not. This fall she did a concert centered around the theme of human trafficking and brought awareness to this serious issue (which you know is near and dear to my heart as well, what a blessing to share that with one's family) as well as raising funds for rescuing and rehabilitating victims.
This is only my second concert of hers to get to attend but each time they have truly been captivating and as a side note, her name, Rebecca, means captivating as well.
She is never one to sit still though and is on to new ventures including writing a Steelers website, Going Deep: An Introspective Steelers Site.
