You’re Invited!

Join us Saturday afternoon, February 5th at 1:00, as Raymond Hawkins leads a session on creative hymn playing. Raymond will present step-by-step demonstrations of how we can tastefully enliven our hymn accompaniments. Raymond writes, “Players of all skill levels should be able to go home with something they can apply the next Sunday, together with techniques to work on to advance their skills over the long term." The program will be at St. Michael’s Episcopal Church, 26 Pleasant Street, Marblehead, and should last about an hour. We request that everyone be vaccinated, and that we all wear good-quality masks, N95 or similar. If we have a small crowd, we will spread out in the choir loft; if we get too crowded, some of us will move downstairs and listen from there.

Jay Lane, Sub-Dean, Program Chair
