Requiem to Benefit TWIGS

A 45 member ecumenical choir will be performing the Fauré “Requiem” on July 26 and July 27 at 7:00 pm at St. John’s United Methodist Church in Edwardsville. I am conducting this piece, but we have two other directors from the area involved: Dr. Don Loucks from St. John’s Methodist Church, and Robert Valentine from Our Lord’s Lutheran Church in Maryville. 

The purpose of this choir was three-fold: to provide a choral ecumenical experience; to raise money for a wonderful cause--in this case TWIGS, a summer lunch program for needy children; and to sing some beautiful musical works.

The concert is free, but a free-will offering will be taken. Please mark your calendars and support the arts, your Director of Music (me!!) and TWIGS. You will be blessed. 

Please contact me with any questions:
