Join the Festival Choir rehearsals for Lenten services

Choir in praise clipartFESTIVAL CHOIR rehearsals have begun! We had a great meeting on Sunday to introduce some of the new music. We continue Wednesday, March 8 at 7:00 pm in the Wheeler Room. (We’ll dedicate the first 30-45 minutes to FESTIVAL music, then continue with Chancel Choir rehearsal.) This is a great chance for singers who like to sing for special occasions but can’t commit to choir year round. We’ll rehearse again on Sunday at 11:00 am right after the service in the sanctuary.
Here’s what we’re doing:
Palm Sunday (April 9): “Benedictus” by Lewis
Maundy Thursday (April 13) at 7 p.m.: For the third year, we will present a poignant Tenebrae service of readings and special music provided by the FCC Festival Choir, Barbara Baird, and guest soloists and instrumentalists.  Anthems include: “Kyrie” from Schubert Mass in G, “What Wondrous Love” w/ instrumentalists, “Pie Jesu” by Andrew Lloyd Webber w/ guest soloists.
Easter (two identical services): “Mary, Mary,” a great gospel piece.
Hope you’ll join us, and thanks!

Greg Sojka, Director of Music Ministries
