Mark your Calendars: Christmas Cabaret and The Messiah
In celebration of Christmas, the Music Ministries at St. Mark’s are planning two events that will bring opportunities for you to invite friends and neighbors to attend with you. On Sunday, December 16, at 4:00pm, the now popular Christmas Cabaret returns for its third year. This event is for all ages and includes singing and hearing favorite carols, all while enjoying treats of the season and seated around tables in MacMurdo Hall. It’s early enough in the day to plan for dinner afterwards! Individuals or families are also needed to help decorate tables or bake/make goodies for the event. If you are interested in decorating a table or making goodies, please contact Cath at firstname.lastname@example.org or 916.483.7848.
On Sunday, December 23, at 7:00pm, plan to come to St. Mark’s first singalong of The Messiah, to be held in the Sanctuary. Scores will be available for those who need them.You might consider inviting your friends to an early dinner before attending. In preparation for this event, there will be some rehearsals, which are open to anyone wanting to learn or review parts of The Messiah and will last about an hour. Sessions will be on Sundays:
November 11 and December 2, at 11:15am; and Fridays, November 16, at 7:00pm.
It’s not too early to be thinking of who you will invite to either of these events. Put them on your calendar now. Invitation cards will be in the Lobby in mid-November. Come and join in the music of the season!
