Sunday, May 20 | Celebrate the 25th Annual Mission Benefit Concert
This year’s Mission Benefit Concert will be particularly special as we are joined by Ted Davis, who was the choirmaster and organist at Reveille when this tradition started.  On Sunday, May 20, at 4:00 pm in the sanctuary, Ted will direct the Chancel Choir and a chamber orchestra in a performance of Haydn's Nelson Mass, one of Joseph Haydn’s greatest compositions. Soloists include Lisa Edwards Burrs (soprano), Carrie Armistead (alto), Reggie Potts, IV (tenor), and Robert J. Phanord, II (bass). 
The Reveille Ringers will also participate in the concert. Fittingly, this was the piece that was performed for the first Mission Benefit Concert at Reveille.  Rehearsals have already begun, but it’s not too late to join the choir on Thursdays at 7:00 pm. If you are interested in participating, please contact Daniel Banke,  

Ted Davis will also present a solo organ recital Saturday, May 19, at 7:00 pm in the sanctuary to commemorate the work that was recently done on our organ.  We hope you will make plans to join us for both evenings.
