leDonne is a women's vocal group started three years ago by Susan Windham and Kristina Ploeger, music educators affiliated with EWU music department.
The choir began with 23 women and now has 50 vocalists. Current conductor is Barbara Tappa, award-winning music teacher at Ferris H. S. Accompanist and vocal instructor is Susan Windham. The group practices weekly and gives three free concerts a year.
Music is chosen to reflect a different theme with each concert and includes jazz, Broadway musicals, spirituals, and contemporary arrangements. Women can join to sing an entire year or by the semester. Rehearsals are Wednesdays at Westminster Congregational Church.
Concert venues are churches due to the great acoustics. Each concert begins at 7 p.m., runs about an hour, and includes a guest musician or group.
