Greetings everyone and happy summer Choir Families!

I hope you are safe, cool and having a wonderful and fun summer season.

The new fall season will soon be upon us, I hope you are as excited as I am about it. We will get started with a short form of Choir Camp this year. The agenda will be to get everyone vested, prepare our opening service music and catch up on everyone’s summer adventures. Come have fun, make music, meet our new music staff Dr. Philip Cave and Mr. Phillip Lamb! and….kick off the new choral season! It is the best way to get focused, ask questions and start the year off with excitement with everyone together!

Be safe and enjoy the end of summer! I’m up in the north of the Netherlands near Groningen and tomorrow will hear two of my favorite organs from the early eighteenth century (well, one of them has pipes going back to the sixteenth century with Poseidon and his triton over the keydesk!) before returning to New York early next week. Have a wonderful Labor Day Weekend!

With all my love, Patrick

One last request, we are updating our choir directory and information data base. If you haven’t already, would you take a moment and fill out the following information and email it back to me with a summer fun photo of your family together? Have a wonderful remainder of the summer! Be safe! See you at Choir Camp on Saturday 7 September! Our First Sunday is 8 September! With all my love, Patrick
