Dear Senior Choir –
I hope this finds you well and enjoying the beautiful weather! It has been a busy summer again this year here at church. We had record registration for the creative arts camp - God’s Kids Sing! and enjoyed again another large group of kids participating in Summertime Players!
I want to fill you in on some things that are happening with choir. First, the Fall Senior Choir schedule is now on-line. I hope you will put the MPLS Organ Concert on October 6 at 4:00 and the Christmas Concerts on December 15 at 3:00 and 5:00 on your calendars today. In order to get up excited and give us a head start, here is a YouTube of the Vierne, Kyrie that we will be performing at the MPLS organ concert http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-zjlRHP0tjk - a pretty powerful work that will be fun to feature the organ with the choir!
Rehearsals for Senior Choir begin Thursday, August 29th at 7:30 with our rehearsal with Brass being on Thursday, September 5th. I hope you will commit to coming to both of these important rehearsals. Rally Sunday this year is Sunday, September 8th .
Once again, I look forward to a wonderful choir season with you!
