A hearty thank you to our choir and handbells for their inspirational music during Lent, Holy Week and Easter. You are a joy! On May 5th we bid a fond farewell to our choral scholars until the next academic year. Kareem is graduating but we think that Tyler and Madison will be among us again. These scholars have been great companions on our musical journey this year. They’ve been reliable, joyful and ever ready to help and sing solos at the drop of a hat. Thank you!
Throughout the month of May the choir will also be learning some new repertoire for the big wedding on June 1st. They’ll be adding two new pieces to their repertoire for next year and for the special occasion in June, they’ll be joined by a host of other singers from around the state. Music abounds!
Happy month of Maying all around.
