The choir has missed being part of services. I know you miss them. Lucy Tenenbaum, Choir Director brought the choir back in this special service. You’ll hear them singing in a live anthem from Sept 2019, then they recorded themselves for two anthems that Chuck Miller and Steve Butterfield refined to give you a YouTube Virtual Choir. Several choir members recorded favorite songs from previous years, and we bring back some recordings we used this spring, but they’re so good, we want them in this service too. Who can resist the Rhubabes??
This service is dedicated to our beloved choir member, Roger Comstock.
