Choral festival to be held at St. Patrick’s

Choral clinician, Peter Schindler, director of music ministries at Church of the Annunciation in Lewisville, Texas, will conduct a choral workshop at St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church, Aug. 6-8. There are no auditions for singers or eligibility requirements. All are welcome to attend and learn.

Schindler has studied the human voice extensively and has developed techniques to help the average singer produce a more beautiful sound. During the course of the workshop, singers will be led through a series of exercises to help improve vocal production as well as learn specific songs that will be performed on Sunday evening, Aug. 8, at St. Patrick’s Sunday Night Unplugged service.

The event will begin on Friday, Aug. 6, with a session from 6-7:30 p.m. On Saturday, Aug. 7, the session will begin at 8:30 a.m. with a break for lunch from noon to 1:30 p.m., and will end at 3:30. On Sunday, singers will gather at 3:30 p.m. to rehearse music for the Sunday Night Unplugged service.

All singers are invited to attend and participate, regardless of church affiliation or experience. This will be an excellent opportunity to learn beautiful music, brush up on vocal skills, sing with friends from around the community, and learn vocal techniques from an expert.

Interested singers are asked to call Sally Neel at 946-6458, or e-mail her at to register for the event. There is a suggested donation of $10 per participant to help cover expenses.
