The St. Thomas Allegro Choir, Grades K-2
Rehearsals, Wednesdays, 5:00-5:30pm, Choir Room
(Optional Dinner with the Choristers, 5:30-6:00, and playtime with Ms. Linda, 6:00-7:00pm)
Many kids at this age show a great interest in music, but often times parents find that they are a little young to begin instrument lessons. The Allegro Choir is the perfect solution: we teach beginning music ideas, how to sing, and how to be a part of a successful team. Parents can drop off their children at the choir room and then go upstairs to fix a cup of coffee or tea. The Choir sings four Sundays a year as part of the 10:15am service at St. Thomas.
After an incredible summer experience singing at the National Cathedral, our choral program is ready to start-up this fall. Mark your calendar for the following start-up dates, and look for communications with more details on their way:
Randy Bowman, flute
YoonGeong Lee, soprano
Catherine Fishlock, alto
James Onstad, tenor
Jonathan Cooper, bass
Vivaldi: Concerto for flute, “La notte”, RV 439
Bach: Süsser Trost, mein Jesus kömmt, BWV 151
Principal Flutist Randy Bowman of the Cincinnati Symphony will be our featured artist for the Bach Vespers on Sunday, January 12, at 6pm.
Mr. Bowman will present a Prelude Recital beginning at5:45pm. Joining him will be the Cincinnati Bach Ensemble as they present Bach’s Cantata 151, “Susser Trost, Mein Jesus Kommt” (Sweet Comfort, My Jesus Comes) along with vocal soloists YoonGeong Lee, Cathy Fishlock, James Onstad, and Jonathan Cooper. Cantata 151 was originally performed in Leipzig following Christmas in 1725.
