Summer Sings 2018

    First Church presents Summer Sings 2018


    Based on the popular Messiah sing-along, these four Summer Sings represent an opportunity for community singers to learn a new work, sing an old favorite, practice your sight-reading or work with a special conductor. There is no preparation for these “sings”; just come and enjoy!

    Four distinguished musicians will lead the Summer Sings, which consist of rehearsal followed by a break and then an informal performance. Dress is casual. Listeners are welcome.
