On November 14th, twelve singers from our Chancel Choir accompanied by two concert patrons will travel to New York City to sing with a 275 voice choir in a holiday performance of The Music of Joseph Martin on the Distinguished Concerts International Concert Series featuring the World Premiere of his newest large choral work, Christmas Evergreens. The concert will be presented on Sunday, November 17th at 8:30 pm in Isaac Stern Auditorium at Carnegie Hall under the baton of Maestro Joseph Martin accompanied by a professional NYC orchestra. Our singers will spend 5 days and 4 nights in NYC. They will attend approximately ten hours of rehearsal time preparing for the performance. There will be opportunities for sight-seeing.

Our singers have been busy learning the music in bi-weekly and Saturday morning practice sessions here at St. Andrews. Perhaps you have heard the sounds of Christmas music coming from our music room on Wednesday evenings and Sunday mornings! The music is wonderful! Our twelve singers are thrilled to have this amazing honor and once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to sing at Carnegie Hall. We are most grateful for the many kind individuals in our St. Andrews family who have given their financial support to help make this trip possible. Many thanks! We pray for God’s blessings and your continued prayers and support as we embark on this wonderful musical journey.

Carnegie Hall Singers: Judy Borger, Barbara Moyer, Carolyn Wakefield, Diane Pomeroy, Robin Gries, Terry Williams, Bonnie Tenney, Maggie Beatty, Ben Donley, James Hanna, Lisa Meyer and Carole Haines. Our concert patrons: Jim Williams and Jocelyn Mahone.
