- Name: Hymn of Praise by Mendelssohn
- Occasion: Community Choir
Calling All Singers!
We are looking for singers to join us as we sing Hymn of Praise by Felix Mendelssohn. The community choir is sponsored by Central Congregational Church of Chelmsford and will present the concert on Sunday, September 9 at 7:30 P.M. Rehearsals are on Sundays at 7:30 starting August 5 plus a Saturday morning rehearsal on September 8. All are welcome to sing.
Hymn of Praise or Lobgesang is actually Mendelssohn’s Symphony #2. After a lengthy introduction there are several choruses. Texts are mostly from the Psalms. “I Waited for the Lord” is very familiar to many. No one writes a lyric line better than Mendelssohn!
And then go to www.cyberbass.org and get a head start on practicing! We are singing in English and will be using the G. Schirmer score. Use your own score or pick one up at the church office during business hours. There is a fee of $10 charged to each singer to help cover expenses. Frances Burmeister, Director of Music at CCC, will conduct. If you have questions contact Ms. Burmeister at email@example.com
Central Congregational Church is located at 1 Worthen Street in Chelmsford. Phone 978 256-5931. The parking lot entrance is on North Road (Route 4) at the foot of Fletcher Street. Look for the flag with the treble clef.
