The Return of the Holiday Choir
If you have attended our candlelight service on Christmas Eve, you know that we always assemble a big choir for the occasion. We’re going to do it again – only this time you don’t have to wait a whole year. For Easter Sunday (April 21), we are going to sing the Missa Gaia (Earth Mass), an eclectic work celebrating nature and spirituality. This will also be our first ever Music Sunday, where the bulk of the service consists of music. Our band will include one of the composers of the mass, singer/songwriter/guitarist Jim Scott (Jim is also the author of several songs in our hymnals, including “For The Earth Forever Turning” and “Gather The Spirit”). It’s going to be an exciting event.
If you would like to be part of the choir for this project, join us!
Here is the rehearsal schedule:
- Sun, March 31, 12:45-2:15 pm
- Wed, April 3, 7:30-9 pm
- Sun, April 7, 12:45-2:15 pm
- Wed, April 10, 7:30-9 pm
- (no rehearsal on Sun, April 14)
- Wed, April 17, 7:30-9 pm
- Saturday, April 20, 2-5 pm (final dress, with orchestra)
All singers are required to attend at least four of the six dates, and everyone must be at the final dress rehearsal.
If you are planning to sing with us, please email me so that we’ll have enough sheet music for everyone. And of course, feel free to reach out if you have any questions. Happy spring!
