This past Sunday, our parish was giving free tours of our new church. It is beautiful! The stained glass windows are from a retired church originally built in the 20's. There is a day chapel for daily mass, a choir loft, a covered entrance, and actual parking spaces that make sense. I am looking forward to celebrating Christmas in this beautiful new space.
|The church is still undergoing major construction, but you get an idea of how it will look. The bottom pictures were taken from the choir loft (my new home).|
This past weekend was also the last orchestra concert under our conductor. It was bittersweet. He was a great conductor and I loved this orchestra under his direction. The next conductor we have will have some big shoes to fill, but I look forward to the changes. Each conductor I have had has taught me something valuable. Our next concert is being conducted by our concertmaster, and we are doing some great music: Barber's Adagio for Strings, Schubert's Overture to Rosamunde, and Mendelssohn's Reformation Symphony. The only one I have played is Adagio for Strings but I LOVE that piece, so I am looking forward to this concert. It should be awesome!
|Good luck, Maestro Tim! We'll miss you even if we will see you around.|
