Wow! Here we are! Christmas is coming, ready or not. I am still in the “not ready” group, but making head-way. I hope you are as well.
We will help our congregation in their journey to the manger this Sunday as we sing “Gloria” and “Fantasia on Christmas Carols”.
This Thursday the choir will meet IN THE CHAPEL AT 7:00 and work on spots that need it with Carol Young. Erick and Jonas will be working with the brass and timpani from 6:30 – 7:30. At 7:25 we will quietly go into the chancel and be seated ready to do the “Gloria” with the brass and timp. We have until 8:00 to do that, then the players leave. Then we will work on the Vaughan Williams piece.
Be prepared: I heard that Erick might ask us to come early on Sunday morning!
Christmas Eve we sing at 7:00 and 9:00 services. We are singing Vaughan Williams again and also “O Holy Night”. So, please turn in “There Is No Rose” (in the wire basket please).
REMEMBER THAT WE EACH BRING SOME SORT OF YUMMY FOOD THING TO SHARE BETWEEN THE SERVICES ON CHRISTMAS EVE.
- We take it to room 202 ahead of our 6:30 call time so that the music committee members can set it up.
- Then please remember to take your dish back to your car before the 9:00 service so that the room is cleaned up.
After this Sunday, you can turn in the “Gloria”, but keep the “Fantasia on Christmas Carols” for Christmas Eve.
See you all on Thursday a little before 7:00 in the Chapel.
Thanks!! It is all going to be wonderful!
