The Central Coast Chorale notes with sadness the passing of our friend Jill Baker. Jill's friends gathered in Newport at a memorial service yesterday, August 14, to celebrate her life. There was much music, a poem, some stories--mostly funny--and a little food. Women of Note sang two pieces in honor of one of their own. Jill was an early member of the Chorale and one of the founding members of Women of Note. She served as assistant director of the Chorale, helping Mary Lee particularly with song selections. She sang with the Chorale for years until complications from a stroke forced her retirement. She will be missed.
