It’s here! It’s nearly here! The Wesleyan Heritage Pipe Organ at First United Methodist Church of SLC.
We are thrilled to announce that on Sunday, January 10, 2016, FUMC will dedicate our historic organ and sanctuary. As such, we are extending an invitation to members of your church choir to join the FUMC Chancel Choir to volunteer and participate with us.
Plans for the dedication include a wonderful celebration. The Rev. Elaine Stanovsky, Bishop of the Rocky Mountain Conference of the United Methodist Church will dedicate the organ and sanctuary. The Community of Faith Combined Choirs will be singing “Sing Unto God” by Handel and “Praise Ye the Lord” by Franck.
We are hopeful that a few members of your choir will come and join the FUMC Chancel Choir to celebrate this wonderful event with us. We are not expecting your whole choir to perform with us, but those of your choir who wish to participate and commit to the rehearsals are all welcome. Rehearsals will be at FUMC at 6:30pm on October 11th, 18th, 25th, and January 3rd.
We have copies of the music available if your library does not have a copy. If any members of your choir are interested in singing for our dedication, please have them contact me via email listed below by September 20th.
We look forward to hearing from you and are hopeful that some members of your choir will join with us for this historic event. Please RSVP by Sept 20th.
