Mary Horenkamp, an alto, designs all our programs and postcards, and I think this is my favorite one yet. The inner postcard is from 1906.

Our holiday concert is only a month away! A reminder: our prices have
gone up. If you buy tickets from me it’s now $20, and $25 at the door.
IMPORTANT: we are frequently sold out. It’s not only cost-effective to
buy tickets from me, it may be the only way you can get them.

Time and place:

Grace Church, Broadway & 10th.
Friday, December 4, 8pm, or …
Saturday, December 5, 3pm.

Our program: Bernstein’s Chichester Psalms, with works by Stanford, Mendelssohn and others. I googled the Chichester Psalms and according to Wikipedia they are “noted among performers for their musical difficulty, with the opening section of the first movement often considered one of the hardest passages for choral tenors ever written …” It is a bit of a challenge, but also very exciting. And festive. The orchestration is really sparkling and alive and celebratory.
