Chapter hosts ‘Annual’ Anthem Reading Session

We kick off the new program year on Saturday, September 27 with an Anthem Reading Session. Last year’s session was so helpful and fun, many attendees asked for it to be repeated. This year’s event will be held at First Church of Christ, Congregational, 2183 Main Street, Glastonbury. We start at 9:30 am and finish at 1:00.

We encourage you to bring a potential new AGO member if possible. Also, bring 1 or 2 of your favorite anthems (less well-known encouraged). A wonderful lunch will be provided at no cost to attendees. The program will provide plenty of time for singing, sharing, and socializing.

5ef79ccd86881f21f38dc48cae5038ffThe anthem reading session will emphasize works accessible to small choirs. Please bring enough copies to share (at least 12). Participants serve as the choir, sight- singing each anthem. You can accompany the anthem you bring, or someone else will be happy to play. A list of titles will be compiled as a resource for all.

In order to help our planning, please email Mary De-Libero (marydelibero@comcast.net) by September 22nd if you are attending. Let her know who’s coming and the anthem titles, composers, voicings, publishers.

Come and get some great fresh ideas for your choirs’ upcoming season.
