Traditional Choir rehearsal begins Wednesday August 5th at in the choir loft. Now is the time to take advantage of our Try Before You Buy plan. You may attend rehearsals through August without making a commitment to sing Sunday Mass. If, at the end of August, you decide its not for you, you are under no obligation. This is a good time to give it a try. We are looking at some new music and there are many practice aids to help learn the music. Reading music is not necessary, as well teach you. All you need is a willingness to learn, and 1 ½ hours each Wednesday. For more information contact: Bill Antoniak at 614-580-0973 or firstname.lastname@example.org
