Choir Practice


I know that not everyone receiving this email is in the choir, but I thought I’d send it to all of you anyway.

Connie and I selected some lovely music for the next months up until Christmas Eve.  You can pick up your music and the list of pieces on Sunday morning at 9:30 am.

So if you want to sing with the St. Stephen’s choir, we  practice Sundays, from 9:30 am to about 10:15 am.
I hope to see many of you there.
