Whether you sing in the Master Chorale or just in the shower, everyone is invited to a “Try-It-Out” choral immersion experience after the service on September 11. For 60 minutes, you will experience the actual process of a choral rehearsal and hopefully find that the Emerson Choir is a “good fit” for you. Contact Scott Rieker (firstname.lastname@example.org) or a choir member for more details.

YOU could be the grown-up who has an impact on their life!
