CHOIR FAMILY NEWS 2 JANUARY 2016

Dear Choir Families,

HAPPY NEW YEAR! With all my love and prayers for everyone for a happy, safe and healthy New Year!

I hope everyone is having a beautiful Holiday Season. If you are traveling I hope it is calm and safe for you all. I’m just back from a short visit with my parents and a trip to see my goddaughter in Wilmington, Delaware. How time flies! Now, I’m in the office preparing for Amahl and the Night Visitors this Sunday at 4:00 p.m.

Come support Ian Rotheroe who is singing the title role in this beautiful short opera about the 3 Wise Men. It was commissioned by NBC and first performed by the NBC Opera Theatre on December 24, 1951, in New York City at NBC studio 8H in Rockefeller Center, the same studio where it was broadcast live on television from that venue as the debut production of the Hallmark Hall of Fame. It was the first opera specifically composed for television in America.
It is wonderful in the space of Grace Church and is very child friendly.

4:00 Sunday 3 January, Free Admission. It will last just over an hour.
