Season 1992-1993 marked the Rogue Valley Chorale’s 20th anniversary. To celebrate the 20th year milestone three songs were written by a self-appointed committee, but most of the credit goes to Leslie Hall and John Leavens. Mary Kay Harmon reported that the committee had more fun putting them together than actually singing them in celebration. To view the songs click here, and here, and here.
