As the Program Manager for the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus, Dorothy feels that her new role serves everything she loves – children, music, and working in a business-related position.

From a young age, Silas Lewis learned to appreciate the beauty of music. His dad would regularly play worship music on his guitar as Silas and his siblings sang along. Annually, Silas and his family would sing Christmas carols for local neighbors and for those lodging at the Jacksonville nonprofit, Gabriel House. Silas started choral singing in high school with the men’s chorus at the Bolles School in Jacksonville. The beauty of choral singing inspired Silas to search for more opportunities to sing. Encouraged by his mom, Silas joined the Jacksonville Children’s Young Men’s Chorus and Touring Choir. The JCC gave Silas an appreciation for excellence in music as well as choral conducting. In his senior year of high school, Silas transferred to Douglas Anderson School of the Arts with a focus on vocal music. Silas received the full-tuition Kinne Scholarship from the JCC and Jacksonville University. Now a Junior in college, Silas attends Jacksonville University, where he sings with the student-led choral group, Infinitus.
