      Lady Meitheamh and Lady Elizabeth,

      Thank you for your informative responses! I have a pretty solid
      choral background and I definitely plan on learning and practicing the
      music before coming to Pennsic. I can't wait to sing with the two of you!

      See you in August!

      Cheers,
      Eilionóra
