Concert attire for 2018:

For the ladies:  Blouses should be black, long-sleeved, and any buttons must also be black. No scoop necks, no lace, no cutouts, just plain black with either a stand-up or man collar. Each lady will be provided with a red scarf that will be wrapped loosely around the neck and draped down the front. This will give the entire chorus a finished, uniform look. I was asked about wearing a full-length black dress.  I see no problem with that as long as it is plain black, meets the same sleeve and collar requirements as the blouses and has NO SLITS in the front or sides of the dress. Black slacks may also be worn in lieu of a skirt or dress.  Black shoes are required.
Men will be required to wear a black jacket, black slacks, a white shirt and a red tie, black shoes and socks.
I was also asked where to get black blouses. After some research, I found suitable black blouses at Walmart, Kohl's, and Woman Within (for those of us who might need something roomier)

Let us bow our heads in prayer and give thanks.

We gather here today with daytime voices,
voices that have carried us through work
or shopping or talking on the phone;
voices we take for granted.

One of the reasons we meet here
is that in singing Your praises,
we are able to use those everyday voices
for a higher purpose.

Transforming our voice from a conversational tool
to an instrument that can raise our souls,
that can free our spirits
and bring us closer to You.

We pray, Lord, that You might help us to feel the joy in music,
the harmony that sums up Your love,
and that in exploring a higher purpose for our voices,
we might know You better.

Grant that what we sing with our lips,
we may believe in our hearts,
and what we believe in our hearts,
we may practice in our lives.

We thank God for the gift of Handel’s music,
the talents of our musicians and director,
and the opportunity to sing together. 
 

And during this season of harvest and thanksgiving,
thru Your Son’s example,
may we continue to help each member of the Family of God
by opening our eyes to the needs of others.

We ask this thru Christ our Lord.    Amen
