Don Peterson, Music Director
Our choirs have had a great start to a new year. As soon as the holidays were over with we began rehearsing music for the Sundays prior to the start of the Lent/Easter. Easter is early this year. April 1st. so mark your calendars. The beginning of Lent is February 14th, Ash Wednesday. There will be three services to choose from. 12 noon, 5:30 and 6:30p.m. I'm looking for additional choir members, both for the Joy Ringers handbell choir and the Chancel Choir that wish to make a short-term commitment to attend rehearsals for six weeks during the Lent/Easter season.
I'm happy to announce that Sandra Clancy, soprano, who sang in the Lampasas Community Cantata Choir has joined the Chancel Choir as of January 1st. Sandra has been a welcome addition to the choir.
As I write my MUSIC NOTES for February I'm also preparing to attend the annual adult choir workshop this last weekend of January. It will be held at First United Methodist Church, Fredericksburg, TX with Pepper Choplin as the guest clinician. Those attending along with me will be Gary Tobias, Linda Nelson, Dorothy Hollister, Mary Tittle and Keith Criss. Keep our choir members in prayer as they learn and grow musically during this workshop.
