Viola Power at 3:00 pm March 31st

What is better than one viola? We know what you’re thinking, NO violas! But the right answer is TWO violas! Please join us as we welcome violist Coca Bochonko to our merry crew for this concert. We will be performing Mozart’s string quintet in G minor and Brahms string quintet in G major. We are also performing Caroline Shaw’s piece for string quartet called Entre’acte. This little gem of a piece is sure to please!

Volunteers Needed for the
Reading of the Passion on Palm Sunday


Greetings from the Intern:


I will be planning and conducting the reading of the passion, for Passion Sunday April 14, 2019. It may seem like this is a long way away but it is only a few Sundays from now. This year “WE” at St David’s will be conducting a reader's theater where I need “MANY PEOPLE” to read aloud parts of the passion. We also need to do a read through probably April 7th after church.

Parts include: Jesus, Pilate, Judas, Mary, Peter, Andrew, Narrator 1&2,
Disciple 1&2, Witnesses, High Priest 1&2, Chief Priest 1&2, Servant 1&2&3, Pharisee 1&2, The Page Boy and Kings!


HELP! I NEED YOU! I can’t do this alone, nor should I. I need you to see me to sign up or I may ask you to take a specific role. I realize that some of you have done this before and may be dying to play a specific part, here is your chance. Let me know ASAP. All parts are currently open, though I have someone in mind for Jesus.


Rehearsal is only two weeks away. You will need to be in church on Sunday, April 7th for the rehearsal if you can (not a deal breaker) but for sure on Passion Sunday, April 14th. Contact me at badge2206@yahoo.com.

Thank You,

Tom Roy
