2017 promises to be a glorious year for St. Paul’s, musically and otherwise. Since our terrific dual chorus Advent Lessons and Carols services in December, the Choir has great momentum. We have a new French horn player, Jonathan , and the brass players have been outdoing themselves to play more. And our hip associate rector Rev. Jeffrey Dodge plays rock guitar, and heavens, does he have a voice! You should hear him solo with the Spirit Band.
Speaking of Spirit Band, every 2 months we have a contemporary band with piano, bass, guitar and drums. And sometimes trumpet (thank you, Greg! , violin (thank you, Zoe! , oboe (thank you, Joan! … So if you play sax, tambourine, or some other fun instrument, or just want to join in singing on the refrain, come on down! Our next Spirit Service is Feb. 19th at 9:30 am.
Lenten Evensong: we look forward to celebrating Lent with a musical Evensong including many other faith traditions.
