Denise Adams, Director
- Encore 2017 will be Denise Adams' 33rd year directing the Morton Civic Chorus in its annual fundraising show for the Central Illinois Memorial Kidney Fund. In that time she has taught at Roosevelt Magnet School, Washington Gifted School, 16 years at Woodruff High School, Peoria High School, and Kellar Primary School. And now, recently retired, Denise can be found tickling the ivories at Sky Harbor on the last Friday of each month. She has watched three kids grow from infants into young adults, and she has loved helping the Morton Civic Chorus grow in musical wisdom and stature, always with the goal of raising more and more money for people with chronic kidney disease throughout central Illinois. Denise thanks all the dear singers for their dedication, and you for your support.
