The beginning of 2019 is a busy time for the Choir School.
This Sunday our youngest singers, the boys and girls of the Town Choirs, will be leading worship at the 10:45 a.m. service. For most of these young children, this will be the first time they have sung during church at St. Peter’s. In addition to learning the anthems that they will sing, they will need to learn how to process at the beginning and end of the service. They will learn the hymns and service music and the order in which these elements come in the liturgy. And, of course, they will work hard to be quiet and attentive throughout the service!
On Saturday, February 23, the Choir School is holding its annual Serenade Gala at the Charlotte Country Club. This year we will highlight the MasterSinger’s upcoming residency in England at Durham Cathedral this July. There will be dinner and dancing, both live and silent auctions, and a performance from the MasterSingers of a program of British music. Please join us – tickets are available at www.thechoirschool.org. Please make your reservation by this Friday, February 8.
Other events for your calendars: On Sunday, March 10, the Boys and Girls Tour Choirs will sing for Evensong at 5pm here at St. Peter’s. A week later, on March 17, the MasterSingers will travel to Durham, N.C. to sing for Evensong at Duke Chapel. The MasterSingers will also be presenting a concert in Davidson at Davidson College Presbyterian Church on April 8 at 7:30 p.m. And of course, save the date for our Spring Concerts, Friday and Saturday, May 10 and 11.
