Joseph Martin Choral Workshop and Concert
Attention all choral singers:
The United Church of Bernardston is sponsoring a choral workshop with Joseph Martin on September 27th. Mr. Martin is one of the leading choral composers in the country. He will be working with us to teach us 6 anthems during the workshop (which lasts from 10 am - 4 pm) and in the evening we will reconvene to present a concert of what we have learned. Mr. Martin will also be performing at the concert.
This is an amazing opportunity. The fee is only $25 which includes the cost of the music and a luncheon. Because of space concerns we have to limit the registration to 100 so please contact us soon. And spread the word. Share this status with other singing friends. This will be a special day.
