Vocal Arts Ensemble, Santa Croce Basilica, Florence, Italy-2014
Singing is a magical thing for me. It keeps me sane. It lets me release all sorts of emotions and thoughts. I offer it all to the universe so that I don’t have to bury my family and friends with the inner workings of my brain.
One of the things that I love about singing with the San Luis Obispo Vocal Arts Ensemble is that I get to sing AND travel. In the summer of 2014, we toured southern France and northern Italy. Our final destination was Florence, Italy for an international choral competition. That meant that we would be judged, graded and awarded on one performance in each category before a panel of three judges. Our competition came from all over the world and every choir had to audition by recording. Some of them were, shall we say, professional grade!

Lee Dunn has been writing since the age of 18, but found that work got in the way for the ensuing 48 years. In his home town of Toronto, Ontario, Canada, he reveled in his independence at an early age, and spent as much time as he could exploring the city’s Arts scene. He was introduced to poetry and prose by the works of two literary giants, namely J.R.R. Tolkien and J.W. Lennon and thence fell in love with the written word. His work includes poetry, short fiction, and personal essays, and ranges in theme from the surreal to the horrific, nostalgic, and themes on the human condition. He has been published on Spillwords.com, The Dark Poets Club, Journal of Undiscovered Poets, Crepe & Penn Literary magazine, and the Shelburne Free Press.
