Good Morning, Brave Choristers-
Many, many thanks for your hard work yesterday- and especially for showing up shortly after midnight to sing- I am so grateful and impressed. And your singing was just lovely, in both services- some of the best blended and balanced singing you’ve done- and so expressive and flexible- great diction too. Lots of congregation civilians were really moved, they told me.
Since there have been changes (as always) in the Choir schedule, here’s the revised schedule- please write it into your Choir Schedule page and your calendar now:
March 24: Chalice Concert, 7 PM- Mendelssohn Piano Trio- wonderful group!- do come
March 25: Introit: Love is the Spirit; Anthem: Shine on Me

April 22: Music Service, both services (final selections and order TBA, as always)
May 5: Rideout Choral Workshop, 9-4 (times firmed up later)- please plan to come- he’s terrific, and it will be a really fun and exciting day; it will include rehearsing for the Union Service, May 6, PM.
May 5: 7:30- The Latin Touch (Latin/Jazz, Auction concert/dance). Do come if you can- always great fun- fine music, dancin’ and regional vittles. Tickets available on the UUCC website, under Auction events. The Chalice Messengers and Singers and solo vocalists are performing.
