Singing in the Mass Choir
The Diocese of Georgia will have a mass choir at both the 11 AM, May 30, bishop ordination and the 11 AM, May 31, Eucharist in Forsyth Park with Presiding Bishop Michael Curry. One does not have to sing on both days to take part. All who take part will need to commit to rehearsing the music in advance. Those in the Savannah area should attend a rehearsal in advance of the May events to be held in Savannah. Those further afield may rehearse on their own or with members in their church choir.
For now, we want to collect information on who wants to take part. We are using a Google Form to collect information for Macdowell Fogle who is choirmaster for the ordination on May 30 and Marquese Carter who is choirmaster for the Eucharist in Forsyth Park on May 31:
