We will launch our program year on Saturday, September 26 with an Anthem Reading Session, 9:30-1:30 at First Church of Christ in Farmington, 75 Main Street, 06032. Lunch will be provided. This year we will movee to the organ console after our lunch break to share some of our favorite organ pieces as well. This is a great event to introduce a prospective new member to our friendly AGO chapter, so feel free to invite and bring someone along.
The anthems you bring should be suitable for a small choir. Bring 15+copies, if you can, and we will sight-read them together. You can direct and/or accompany, or someone else will be happy to play. A list will be compiled of the anthems presented – a useful resource for your music planning. If you can’t think of an anthem you would like to bring, just come and sing, have lunch and catch up with your colleagues.
To register for the session, contact Mary DeLibero by Tuesday, Sept. 22. Let her know you are coming, if you are bringing a guest (we will need a head-count for lunch) and what anthem you will share.
