Even with the choir’s reduced rehearsal schedule, we are hopeful that anthems will be prepared for the last Sunday of Epiphany, a Lenten Sunday, Easter Vigil and Easter Sunday. Lea Bortner will be working on a Palm Sunday anthem with the Church School children and special music is being prepared by Timothy Bortner and hopefully some of our other gifted parishioners. It was a blessing to sing a duet with Lea for the Annual Meeting service.
As part of our Easter organ tuning, the Murphy Organ Company will be doing some extensive work in house and preparing to also complete some much-needed work at their workshop in Stowe, PA. We are grateful for an anonymous donation to help with this project. Our Austin organ will be 100 years old in 2022 and we hope to have a celebratory concert to commemorate that occasion.
Our final concert for the 2018-19 series will be held on March 31 with the Copeland String Quartet. This will be their second appearance with us and they are thrilled to be returning. Please see the enclosed flyer for details.
As always, there will be sign-up sheets in the ambulatory and on the lounge bulletin board requesting your usual delicious offerings for the reception to follow the concert. Many thanks in advance as our receptions are lauded by both audience and artists alike.
Next season’s series is complete— October 20, November 24, 2019 and March 29, 2020. More details will be forthcoming in the May/June TOPICS.
