August 2010

Greetings to everyone!  Hope you all had a wonderful summer vacation!

As usual the first group time, Saturday, August 28th at 10:00 in the choir room, will be a fun time when we invite everyone to dress up somehow or not and play a fun piece.  You could also compose your own.  Look forward to seeing everyone there to start this next year. 

 I would like to invite anyone who would like to play with us at St. George Church on August 22nd  before the service at 10:00.   You are also invited to stay for the worship service.  We will play from the Robert Frost book of Sacred Settings –Amazing Grace in F page 12, The Doxology page 5, and O God Our Help in Ages Past page 5 and/or The Heavens Resound by Beethoven page 18.  We will play both melody and harmony parts.
