Musical Notes

Holy Week approaches and the First Reformed Church Adult choir has been working hard to present to you a variety of thrilling music to enhance your worship experience. On Holy Thursday expect to hear the art of John Coakley’s clarinet and on Easter Sunday morning come to listen to the sweet soprano voice of Lily Kramer-Mills. In addition to these soloists, the choir has been preparing several pieces as a group for these two celebrations.

In March, the choir had a special robe-sewing party in the Randolph Room, and the Hances were so generous to have taken the robes to be cleaned. Now you will see all of the senior choir members bouncing around (and sometimes grumbling) in these shiny, clean robes on Sunday mornings. Please compliment them in their attire… they are shy (wink!).

Also in March, we witnessed young artist Daphne Beemsterboer’s interpretation of Arcangelo Corelli’s Sonata on A minor. Daphne has been working so diligently and she really deserved the applause for such a moving rendition of the not-so-well-known baroque gem. There is more to come later… Put on your seatbelts — we’re going for a musical ride in April. I hope you can join us for each and every Sunday’s musical adventures.
