Connecticut Choral Festival
All singers are invited to join the Chancel Choir for a Connecticut Choral Festival, held here at First Church on Saturday, October 19 for a day-long rehearsal, meal, and evening concert. Our guest conductor will be Tom Trenney, Minister of Music at First-Plymouth Church in Lincoln, Nebraska. This festival is also sponsored by the United Church of Christ Musicians Association. We currently have commitments from churches around CT, including Guilford, West Hartford, Stamford, New Canaan and Greenwich.
There is no cost for First Church singers, except for a $10 fee for dinner that evening. Music will be provided for you from the choir library. Tom will also be playing and conducting some of the anthems from the festival the next morning, Sunday, October 20, during our morning worship. There are 8 anthems being sung Saturday night, and 2-3 on Sunday morning (chosen from Saturday’s program). Singers are welcome for both events! Rehearsals for the festival will be during our regular Chancel Choir rehearsals on Thursdays from 7:30-8:00 p.m., starting September 19.
