Lift Your Spirits: Expressions of Joy at the Isotopes Park
We could all use a little joyous expression in our lives. Get yours tonight when choral group Expressions of Joy opens for the Isotopes by singing the National Anthem. It’s the chorus’ second invitation to perform before an Isotopes game. Founded in 2011, the group’s purpose is “to bring the joy of singing to individuals with developmental disabilities and/or other special needs.” According to Expressions of Joy, Inc. President Jeannine Kammann-Cessac, “not everyone might be able to lift a bowling ball or run in the Special Olympics, but everyone can at least feel the music, sway, smile and sing to our tunes.” The choir welcomes new members 17 and older; no special skills are required.

The Doors L.A. Woman was the first Doors record to feature a bass player, Jerry Scheff, who was one of Elvis Presley's backing musicians. No one here gets out alive, man.
