(Soprano), Kim Cooney (Tenor), Ken Labertew (Baritone), Brian Soushek
(Musician), and many more accomplished musicians and singers.

from the upcoming performance of Joseph Parry's "Blodwen."
This event is free; however, your
generous donations allow Grace Lutheran to provide this line up of high caliber
artists to delight and entertain, a copy of music sheets to follow along during
the congregational singing, and a splendid array of food and drink to satisfy
your appetite - well worth a gift of $10 or $20 per adult for this program!
