Westminister Choir Concert
The Westminster Schola Cantorum from Westminster Choir College will be here at St. Michael in concert on Saturday night March 14 at 7:30 pm. This world-class choir consists of students who go to Westminster Choir College to become professional Church musicians and music teachers throughout the world. Admission is FREE. The concert, "I Will Lift Up Mine Eyes" commemorates the anniversaries of World War I and World War II, features the music of Ralph Vaughan Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem.
We also need help housing the 90 young people in this group!
Please consider extending our special St. Michael hospitality to these young folks by opening your homes and offering them a place to rest. Sign up here
if you would be willing to host a student for a night.
