Thank you so much for joining us for the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus’ last performance of the 2015-2016 season. The children, our Jacksonville stars, and their dance partners from A Social Affair dance studio have been working tirelessly so that this evening becomes our best Jacksonville’s Dancing with the Stars yet! Your support of The Chorus enriches our singers’ experiences and the life of our community. I am privileged to live and work among people who share my goal of building a world-class children’s chorus in Jacksonville. I firmly believe that when children are given the opportunity to excel, and are supported by talented instructors who challenge them to achieve their fullest potential, they do. And, not only does the child benefit, the entire community benefits, too! I am humbled by the generosity of our community; a community that supports the Jacksonville Children’s Chorus’ provision of scholarships to children who might not otherwise have a choral arts experience. Because of scholarships, these children are able to grow and develop into musical leaders in their schools and communities. Tonight is a night to celebrate our singers and our Jacksonville stars who are dancing on stage, and it’s also about celebrating you—with your help, The Chorus is able to move forward and shape the lives of our next generation of leaders. Thank you again for your support, time, and contributions. You are in for a treat tonight. Enjoy the Show! Sincerely,

Darren Dailey Artistic and Executive Director

Annie has always has a passion for health and fitness, so when asked to join Jacksonville’s Dancing with the Stars she jumped at the chance!

Joy Purdy

Co-Emcee

Evening News Anchor, WJXT/Channel 4 Joy Purdy is returning to the anchor desk with The Local Station. After taking much of the year off to spend time with her two young children, she is returning to News4Jax to co-anchor the 5:30, 6:30 and 11 p.m. weeknight newscasts with Rob Sweeting. Joy was born and raised outside Trenton, N.J., where her parents nurtured her inquisitive nature by having her watch and relay to them the morning weather report from the Today Show as they prepared for work each day. Joy’s television career began shortly after graduating from Villanova University with a B.A. Degree in Mass Communications and a minor in Education. With an internship at Philadelphia’s “Channel 6 Action News” under her belt, Joy joined public TV’s New Jersey Network News producing and airing news updates on the radio. Joy quickly became one of NJN’s main TV news reporters, helping cover big stories like the inauguration and new administration of New Jersey’s first female governor (Christine Todd Whitman), and interviewing prominent figures like the late Civil Rights leader Coretta Scott King, then U.S. Attorney General Janet Reno, and tennis superstar Pete Sampras. Joy’s strong journalistic reputation and contagious energy led her to Jacksonville, Florida as a Weekend News Anchor and “Police Beat” Reporter for then CBS-affiliate WJXT from 1995 to 2000. For five years, Joy tenaciously covered countless big stories on the First Coast. Joy was awarded the Associated Press’ Individual Achievement Award for her work in Jacksonville. Before long, bigger markets began calling and Joy accepted a noon and 5 p.m. anchor position with CBS-owned WFOR in Miami; a position she maintained during her nearly seven years. After getting married in the spring of 2006, Joy returned to Jacksonville in September of 2007 to be with her new husband; what she calls part of God’s perfect plan for her life. “After dating long distance between North and South Florida for nearly seven years, my husband and I were elated when I was asked to join the First Coast News team.” Joy left WTLV early in 2013 shortly after giving birth to their second child to spend time with her young children. At the end of the summer, she was ready to get back into the professional world and was happy to turn to her first family in Jacksonville at WJXT. Joy, her husband and children enjoy going to the beach and Jags games, and they all love to travel.

Artistic Excellence. Accomplishment. Pride. Founding and Leadership In 1995, several colleagues at Jacksonville University met to discuss the possibility of making a shared dream come true. Local conductor Jim Taylor, with guidance from thenUniversity President Dr. Fran Kinne and vocal conductor Dr. Jon Carlson, developed the framework for a Jacksonville University Children’s Chorus. The program’s first choir served 16 children, but through word of mouth, the program grew, and in 1998, Taylor and a brand-new Board of Directors worked to re-organize it into The Jacksonville Children’s Chorus. Though there were pitfalls and moments when the fledgling organization almost ceased to exist, the shared enthusiasm of children, parents and staff carried it forward. In 2006, Darren Dailey, Artistic Director of the Boston Children’s Chorus, was recruited to become the Artistic

and Executive Director. Today The Jacksonville Children’s Chorus is a leader in music education and performance.

Major Accomplishments

Since its inaugural season in 1995, The Chorus has served more than 10,000 children. The core performance choirs have grown to include an annual membership of more than 350 gifted young singers, ages six to 18, representing more than 160 schools. The Chorus draws from diverse racial, religious and socioeconomic backgrounds, transcending differences and emphasizing similarities and common goals.

Performance
