SING - We hope that all parishioners will join in support of The Second Annual Sing-it-Yourself Messiah which will be held on Sunday, December 21st at 4:00 pm. The orchestra and soloists are ready, now we just need you to help sing the chorus parts. Tickets for this parish-wide community event are available at Coffee Hour and online at www.brownpapertickets.com/event/969490.
PRACTICE -This year Vince Peterson will offer a free pre-concert class for singers who would like to review a cross-section of difficult singing spots throughout the score – a fun and engaging afternoon, full of insights, tricks, and free singing tips! The class will run from 2:30 to 3:30, with a break at the end of class for some light refreshments in the Parish Hall before the concert.
BAKE - In keeping with Christmas traditions, you may also want to help John Lord bake cookies for the Messiah singers. Baking will begin on Saturday, December 20th at 9:00 am. Contact John if you are able to help.
