I'm excited to announce that as part of this upcoming CCA Parish Choir season, we are introducing opportunities for singers to join us on a limited-commitment basis for special events throughout the year. A more complete listing will follow next month, but at the moment I can announce two such events to take place later this year.
Rheinberger Requiem on All Saints' Sunday, November 1
Josef Rheinberger, this year's featured composer, writes music that is at once carefully controlled and heart-on-sleeve expressive. You can listen to an excerpt from this work here. Join us for three Wednesday evening rehearsals, October 14, 21, and 28, and sing with us as we elevate our All Saints' service.
Advent Lessons and Carols, December 4
Advent service and dinner is a tradition here at Christ Church, but it has been some time since we have made the service a traditional lessons and carols. The service is on Friday, December 4 at 6 pm (dinner to follow), and alternates readings with hymns and anthems focusing on expectation. It's a beautiful way to find some space and calm in the hectic run-up to Christmas. You'll need to join us for two rehearsals: Sunday November 29 (following the 10:15 service) and Wednesday December 2.
