CARMEL BACH FESTIVAL SOLOISTS — A JULY TREAT!

During the remaining Sundays of July, we will once again welcome Carmel Bach Festival soloists, who are kind enough to step in for the All Saints’ Choir, which is on a well-deserved summer break. Mezzo-soprano Patricia Thompson is with us today, baritone Tim Krol on the 22nd, and tenor David Vanderwal on the 29th. Many of you will remember them from previous visits, so be sure to welcome them at coffee hour. They tell me they enjoy talking with you, unless they must rush off for another rehearsal once our service is over.

Jean Widaman, Interim Choir Director
