The Orlando Deanery Boy Choir under the direction of Canon Benjamin Lane and Mrs. Claire Hodge will sing for the 11am Festal Eucharist at St. Thomas Church in New York City as part of their tour in June 2014. Having frequently accompanied choirs under the direction of Ben Lane, I have been invited to join the group and play the opening voluntary for the service, Le Banquet Céleste by Olivier Messiaen. You can find out more about the choir tour at http://www.deanerychoirtour.org/ or watch the event webcast here.
Because I’m on the road attending the Association of Anglican Musicians conference in Washington, DC this week, this is going to be a super brief update. St. Thomas has updated their website to include the repertoire for this Sunday’s Festal Eucharist sung by the Orlando Deanery Boychoir and Girls Choir. The service will be broadcast over the internet, so even if you aren’t in New York City Sunday, you can still listen. The service is scheduled to start at 11am, but I’m playing prelude music, so you’ll need to tune in earlier or catch the recording available afterwards if you are trying to hear me play. Information about the service can be found at St. Thomas here. There is a link in red on the right side of the page that will enable you to listen to the service.
Hoping you have a fun and adventuresome summer!
