The Cathedral Choir made its very first overnight trip, and it was a smashing success! September 10th & 11th the choir was in residence at All Souls Cathedral in Asheville, North Carolina. We spent time rehearsing music we will sing throughout the fall, preparing to sing the services at All Souls Cathedral on Sunday, and visiting the Biltmore Estate. The choir enjoyed the chance to get to know each other over meals and having fun. The services on Sunday included the 11:15 Holy Eucharist and 5:00 Evensong. The congregation was very enthusiastic in their praise and gratitude, and many of their choristers commented about how much they appreciated hearing another choir in their space.
The choir will next travel on Sunday, January 22nd when we will sing Evensong at Christ Church Cathedral in Nashville. We are also considering other trips in the coming years leading up to our week-long residency at the cathedral in Bristol, England during the summer of 2019.
