Italy or bust
The choir has been invited to sing at the 2016 International Choral Festival in Verona from March 29, 2016 - April 5, 2016. There will be over 30 choirs from all over the world singing at this festival. The choir will be hosting a number of fundraisers to help offset some of the cost for the singers. All are invited to join the choir, even if you aren't singing. Space is limited so register now for this exciting trip. Beyond the choir singing at some wonderful venues in Verona and Florence, one of the highlights will be the visiting the studio of Maestro Albano Poli, who designed the new crucifix in the Church. Accommodations in Verona will be on beautiful Lake Garda. An informational meeting will be held on Sunday, September 13 following the 11:15 Mass in the Media Center.
