,As our choir comes together for the 2022-2023 program year, more tenor and alto choir members are needed to balance our growing soprano and bass sections. There are several special music opportunities for our choir in the coming months:
If you are interested in ringing handbells, returning to the handbell choir, and/or helping with re-organizing our bell choir, please reach out to Sue Mitchell-Wallace. When we have enough ringers enrolled, we will resume rehearsals on Sunday mornings 9:00 – 10:00 a.m. in the handbell room.
Are the musical opportunities above falling a bit flat? Is organization what makes your heart sing?
If you have cataloguing and library skills, volunteer assistance is needed for our church’s choral music library. This is important, ongoing work for the music ministry of St. David's.
If any of these Music Ministry Opportunities has struck a chord with you, please email Sue Wallace. She would be delighted to answer any questions. You may email her at Music@stdavidchurch.org

Sunday, December 20, 2020.
Join our St. David’s Choir and Virtual Singers, as they sing anthems and hymns with choirs, readers, and instrumentalists from around the world in a splendid 2020 debut Lessons and Carols Service, virtually broadcast from London on Sunday, December 20th, 5 pm EST.
Here is the link to our Order of Service
It includes all carols and readings and as a result, it is quite a long document. You may wish to use a tablet rather than printing it out. It is recommended that you listen to this Service of Lessons and Carols using headphones, for best audio fidelity. Please note, the only video content is Ben England, conductor, the choir, and the extracts from Messiah. The children, Recordare Soloists, the Readings, and soloists are audio-only.
