St. John’s Church Vocal Ensemble Celebrates its 30 Year Anniversary!
It’s hard to believe that St. John’s Church Vocal Ensemble is celebrating its 30 year anniversary this year. These have been very rewarding years for the group. We have performed in various cities and countries over the years, both a Capella and with string ensembles and organ accompaniment. The vocal ensemble is a very important part of the spiritual life of the congregation. Thanks to our exceptional music director Brigita Alks, we perform a broad range of repertoire in several different languages and styles. We are most grateful to Brigita for making those long journeys from Buffalo every weekend to teach us and make our lives that much richer.
The vocal ensemble rehearses every Saturday morning from 10:00 am until 12:00 pm from September to May, and also meets several times over the summer months for rehearsals. We sing in church services on average once a month, in addition to all special worship services.
The St. John’s Church Vocal Ensemble will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a concert on October 25th, 2008 at 7:00 pm at the church.
We will also be joined by organist Anita Gaide and a string ensemble. We welcome new singers at any time! If you are interested in joining us in song, please call the ensemble President Gunta Reynolds at (416) 602-7176.
