Dr. Jeffrey Jahn 19xx-20xx
For 25 years ARS blossomed under the gifted musical direction of Dr. Jeffry A. Jahn. His energy and passion for choral arts inspired his singers and audiences alike. Although everyone associated with ARS – singers, supporters, audiences – are profoundly heartbroken by his untimely death, we are immeasurably blessed by the many years that Jeffry graced our community as a musician, mentor, educator, composer, humorist…and generous-hearted friend to so many people. Jeffry, we know you are conducting the heavenly choir of angels with the same enthusiasm and unbridled joy you shared with all of us.
