I was in Chrysalis for four years. My favorite part of Chrysalis is that, being an all-girls choir, we can open up so much in prayer and devotions. The friends made here are friends for life, spiritual mentors who lift each other up in prayer and sing praises to our Lord." Melissa Morehouse, alumna
