Music This Month

     It’s been a busy spring, but summer follows right behind. So now we’re hard at work scheduling special music in June, July, and August.

     Plans are as yet pretty fluid but one thing I’m delighted to report is, after a hiatus of three years, we’ll again welcome Santa Fe Opera Apprentices to our Sunday morning worship! They weren’t allowed off campus last year, lest they bring Covid-19 back to the ensemble, but this summer they again have permission to participate in things off the opera grounds. One change is we won’t have them every week but, rather, once a month. By not having opera arias every Sunday we’ll enjoy a more varied palette of musical offerings.

     I’m also planning our usual three Drop-in choirs throughout the summer. The first date is June 18, Father’s Day. That day we’ll sing a piece for men’s chorus, so the women of the choir can sit back and enjoy our wonderful men’s section. And any men of the congregation who don’t normally sing with us—or any male visitors that morning—are welcome to come rehearse at 9:00 am, learn the anthem, and join in the singing at 10:00.

     July and August dates are tentative right now, so I won’t announce them yet. But I’ve also reached out to the many musical members of the congregation to ask for their involvement in summer music. We have such a musical community, it’s an embarrassment of riches!


See you in church,
