The Piedmont East Bay Children's Choir lost a dear friend, Ray Perman, on February 4, 2017. Ray was an important part of the choir for many years and received the 2014 Founders Award. He was inspired by music: playing and supporting it. He stayed involved with the choir till the end, even bringing a van of percussion instruments to camp the summer before his passing.  
Donations in honor of Ray can be sent to the Founders Fund in Memory of Ray Perman. The fund will support some of Ray's passions including scholarships and the choirs international activities.

The Judi Fabrizio Scholarship Fund

Judi Fabrizio retired from working in the PEBCC office  in 2016.  After almost 17 years with the Piedmont Choirs, Judi was the “face” of the choir, the “voice” for Member Services, not to mention the uniform coordinator par excellence, Judi cannot be replaced and is greatly missed.  She has touched everyone with whom she has worked, and offered fairness and wisdom to all of our choir families over these many years.
True to Judi’s spirit, she asked that those who might wish to honor her, do so by contributing to the Judi Fabrizio Scholarship Fund established to create and provide scholarships for children in need who participate in the Choir programs and, thus, to offer them a positively life-changing experience through music.
