Tracy is currently working on Volume 1 of the Songs of Hope and Humanity Project. These are songs written by Tracy or her late partner, TR Ritchie ( She is arranging them for performances with philanthropic organizations, community choirs and progressive church services. These arrangements will be for SATB, Soprano/Alto, Tenor/Bass and simple 2-part choirs. All carry a positive message about the power of human beings working together to create harmony.

 Donations to fund this project are gratefully accepted. Choir rehearsals will start upon the project’s completion, with a paid choral director and accompanist. There will be at least one public performance in Bellingham, after which recordings and sheet music of this project will be made available to community choirs throughout the United States and beyond. 

Please help her further this work with a donation today!

Tracy is thrilled to collaborate on the “Songs of Hope and Humanity Project” with composer-pianist Karen FitzGerald. Karen’s solo piano compositions range from delicate and soothing to passionate and soul-stirring, evoking the beauty of nature, the subtle shades of human emotion and a longing for spiritual wholeness. Karen also brings to the project a lifetime of choral singing, arranging and directing, blessing numerous singer-songwriters and vocal groups with her unique piano style.
