Hello singers,

Thank you so much for your participation in Ministry Days and the Service of the Living Tradition! I have provided a few notes for you as we prepare to work together next week.

First, I want you all to be proud and feel successful so it is important to me that you plan to attend each rehearsal in full. For those of you not arriving on time on Monday to rehearse, it is doubly important to have your full rehearsal time on Tuesday.

I love choral music. It feeds my soul! My greatest joy is to help feed the souls of other folks with music made by the human voice. We will be serious, and we will have fun. It will be glorious!

Below are some links to videos and 3 copies of music we will sing. Unfortunately, for I Believe, I was unable to find a teaching video for the bass section. No worries, we will be fine!

Please plan to pick up your music folders at the first rehearsal, and please plan to return the music after you have sung in your last worship service.

I am looking forward to seeing you all next week!

In faith,
