FIFTY-EIGHTH DIOCESAN ADULT CHORAL FESTIVAL HELD AT ST. THOMAS’

diocesan-adult-choral-festival-2011-sqFor the first time in its fifty-eight year history, the Diocese of Texas Adult Choral Festival is being held outside Christ Church Cathedral. We are deeply honoured and delighted to be the first parish to be invited to host this important musical event in the annual diocesan calendar. We encourage you to bring your family, friends and colleagues for what will be a feast of readings from the King James Bible and prayers from the 1928 Book of Common Prayer for the church year. The combined choirs of the diocese will be singing some of the best examples of music written for the Episcopal Church. We very much hope you will be able to find time to come to support us.

The Rev’d Dr. William Bradley Roberts, distinguished professor of church music at Virginia Theological Seminary (see this week’s Music Notes) will be preparing and directing the choirs.
