Sanctuary Choir Meets Online
The Sanctuary Choir has been meeting weekly via Zoom. Special guests have joined us each week, including Chuck Hodges, Bishop Sue, Don Saliers, and Esther Tonea (a former staff singer who now sings with the San Francisco Opera). Stephen recently shared this with the choir:
“Out of adversity always comes the best art.”
Choral singing is not over. We will sing again. And when we do, we will have a renewed passion, great energy, and a new message to sing.
Hang in there. This is just a pause to recharge - because
what is coming will be more moving and important than we will ever know.
Continue to keep the choir in your prayers. We look forward to singing again when it is safe to do.
