Choir Annual Report 2011
by Choir Director Paulette Velazquez
The choir has been rehearsing new music for Christmas and the Sunday liturgies. We are collecting Tropars and Kontakions for the Saints that we commemorate each Sunday. This will require buying new filing cabinets. I would be interested in starting a teen choir, but this would entail a commitment from the teens and their parents to attend rehearsals. They would be singing new music and possibly they could sing Liturgy once a month. At Christmas we had the Church School children learn new music for the Christmas program and they did a wonderful job. We hope to do this again this year. The music literacy course is still going forward with about 8 attending. This will continue in the near future. This course is very important for singers who do not read music and really want to learn new hymns. This course is open to any member of the parish who would like to learn how to sing the church music. I would like to thank the choir members for their attendance at rehearsals and commitment to singing the services.
