This evening the Chancel Choir from Euclid Avenue Congregational Church rehearsed at the Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist in downtown Cleveland for our performance at the Jubilation Festival on Friday night, May 21. Although it is a competition, we are not competing, but we were invited to perform during the judges’ deliberations. Jubilation starts tomorrow night and concludes on Friday night. It will be broadcast live on WCLV 104.9 FM beginning at 8:00 PM EDT. WCLV will stream over the Internet as well.
As you know from past posts here, it hasn’t been the greatest Spring for our church or for the choir, since the destruction by fire of our building, our music and robes (plus everything else in the building), so being invited to perform in such a venue as the cathedral, and on the radio, is such an honor for us. It has brought a lift to the choir’s spirit, I think. I am really proud of the choir and their hard work to get ready for this appearance. They sound awesome in the space. If you’re available, it’s free and should be a good show.
