There are about 60 people participating in the Redmond Community Choir this spring, and they all have a story to tell — about their life experiences, what music means to them, and their involvement in the choir.

Suzanne Yeakey is new to the choir this year, but her music career goes back a lifetime. She remembers standing on the coffee table and entertaining guests with her rendition of “Tiny Bubbles” when she was two years old. She sang her first solo, “You Light Up My Life, ”when she was in the sixth grade. And at age 14, she played Liesl in The Sound of Music alongside her mother who portrayed Maria Von Trapp.
