Dear Parish Choir, Thank you for an amazing and rich season of 2015-2016, we continue to grow in repertoire and opportunities to make music together. It is so much fun!
Would you consider adding in January, Shepherd’s Chorus in Amahl and the Night Visitors – no costumes – I promise! you can keep your shoes on! There would be a rehearsal on 4 January, Wednesday evening from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. and the offering would be 8 January with a 2:30 call and 4:00 service.
and…..who knows what else the Holy Spirit might bring to us!
Long term I’d like to start working on the parts in English for Honegger’s beautiful KING DAVID.
Here is the combined choir rehearsal schedule so you can look ahead and think about it.
Have a brilliant summer and thank you for being such heavenly angels of song! Love, Patrick
