Fall 2007

Exciting opportunities and honors have come our way this fall! We will be singing some new hopeful works at the Hospice of VNS Fall Memorial Service on October 21 at the Bath Church. The choir is also honored to receive an invitation to provide musical inspiration at the memorial service for the Ohio Hospice and Palliative Care Meeting in Columbus on November 8. They have also received word that the "Hope in the Night" CD, which was designed to bring comfort to hospice families, will be recognized in February by the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association, the organization for certified End-of-Life professionals. The award, the Marion Ryan Artistry in End-of-Life Award, will be presented to Kathy Meyer in Tampa, Florida on February 1, 2008. The choir is excited to share in this honor and hope that it will help to spread the hopeful messages to listeners in new parts of the country. They have also planned 2 Christmas concerts in December. The first will be a return visit to the hospitable First Baptist Church of Alliance on December 2. Then, the newly initiated Church of the Boulevard, in Kenmore (Akron), will be the site of a special evening concert later that day. See the calendar link for further details. This concert will be presented with interpretation for the hearing impaired. Both concerts will be open to the public. Enjoy the wonders of fall with hope!
