Virtual Choir Rehearsal

All are invited to join our new Director of Music, Frank Martignetti in rehearsing a choral piece we will record as a "virtual choir" for Pentecost, May 23.  On Pentecost, we will release a video performance of The Wind Blows Where It Wills. We will rehearse on Zoom, as best we can, and continue to get to know each other and discuss future plans for the Chancel and Festival Choirs.  Join us!
