Singers needed for St. Peter’s 250th celebration

Posted

The festivities commemorating St. Peter’s 250th anniversary this year are continuing, and the next event requires the help of the community.

St. Peter’s cantor, Joyce Gerstenlauer, is seeking community members who enjoy singing to participate in a community choir at 3 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 22 in the 250th anniversary Festival Concert. A cantor is a person who sings solo verses or passages to which the choir or congregation responds.

Rehearsals for the October concert begin this Sunday, Sept. 10, and continue for the next five weeks until Sunday, Oct. 15. Rehearsals are from 2 p.m. to 3:15 p.m. each Sunday. All vocal parts are accepted and all ages are welcome.

“I’m not turning anyone away,” Gerstenlauer said.

So far there are 15 church choir members involved and eight members of the community have expressed interest in singing.

“I’m hoping to have maybe 40 people,” Gerstenlauer said.

For more information or to inform Gerstenlauer of your interest, email her at cantor@stpetersmiddletown.org or call her at 717-514-2935. Singers are asked to provide their name, phone number, and the part they sing.
