I had the pleasure of staying in Transylvania this summer with the family I know best from our Partner Church.

Choir Connection Time (LIMBO)
Note that this fall we’ll have a 30-minute Choir Connection Buffer 4:45-5:15, for which all choir kids are encouraged to be present. This is a time that we’ll bring together members of both choirs for such special activities as creating a choir covenant, working on solo and small group pieces, playing instruments, or just hanging out and playing games!
Come January, this connection time will be used for working on choruses for our operetta, so it will be required of all operetta participants. Remember, in order to have a lead in the operetta, you need to be in Children’s or Youth Choir for the year.
Please get in touch with Director of Music Vivian Montgomery if you’re interested in joining any choirs or if you have questions – email@example.com. Looking forward to seeing you all soon for another big year of singing and playing!
