From the Artistic Director and Conductor
Dear Friends and Patrons,
As we enter our 4th decade of singing praise to almighty God through the music of Bach, Handel and other masters, we are still enjoying the fond memories of our 30th year celebration held in April and May of this year. In an area where this type of music is a “hard sell” and the county of Carbon being one of the smallest, we are all still amazed by the support and encouragement that we have received from so many people. We are now ready to begin our 4th decade with some wonderful concerts being offered in many different locations. I urge you look at our concert schedule for dates, times, locations and other pertinent information and plan on attending as many as you are able.
Sadly, with grants and other financial support drying up and the present state of our economy, we will not be able to have the Bach and Handel Festival Orchestra join with us this season. As our single most expensive part of our small budget, we are hopeful that we will once again be able to have them join us next season, God willing. While this saddens me, the chorale continues to move ahead with preparation of the music to be performed for many concerts. I will once again be accompanying and conducting from the piano. We have many new and some old music that we will be performing. We will once again join forces with the Perserverence Jazz Band from Lehighton, Pennsylvania in the Spring of 2015. It is a real joy performing with these very talented gentlemen.
