Our Spirit Singers wrapped up on Good Shepherd Sunday May 12, and enjoyed an end of year ice cream party graciously hosted by Spirit Singer parents Lindsey Drager and Richard Schwappach. Thank you!
Our Third Sunday Band with special guests Sue Tice and Keith Arneson wrapped up with one of our biggest services of the year on Sunday June 9, our annual Bluegrass Mass. Although they are on summer “recess” from church, do come out and support them at two upcoming June events, the Wednesday evening June 13 Baysox game in Bowie and at the Annapolis Pride parade Saturday afternoon on June 29.
As previously mentioned, Chancel Choir, Motet Ensemble and Youth Chorale are wrapping this Sunday, with final rehearsals this week. In a past Dragon tales note, I mentioned Sundays July 14 and August 18 as two Sundays where a “pick-up” choir will offer the music for 9 & 11:15 a.m. These days are the perfect opportunity for parishioners (and friends of parishioners or family members in town visiting) who love music and who love to sing to offer their musical talents and to lend their voices to the choir Open to anyone middle school ages and above, current choir member or not, do consider joining us! Rehearsals will be at 8 a.m. on both days.
Lastly, a special congratulations and thank you to Youth Chorale graduating seniors Abigail Wenz and Rita Veno for their contributions to the Chorale and the musical life of St. Margaret’s this year.
Stay tuned in the coming weeks for information about the musical offerings during the summer months and the 2019-2020 program year.
