The St. Cecilia Society of St. Mary Church is pleased to present its annual benefit concert in honor of St. Cecilia on Friday, 23 March 2012 at 7:30 p.m. The St. Mary's Schola Cantorum, under the direction of David Hughes, will sing a program of Lenten sacred music centered around the penitential text Media vita.
This concert, which is usually sung each year in mid-November, near to the feast of St. Cecilia, was postponed this year because of the magnificent repainting of the St. Mary's sanctuary this past fall. (It is not inappropriate to relocate it to the month in which occurs the feast of St. Gregory the Great.) It is the single annual fundraiser to support the work of the Schola Cantorum.
A reception will follow the concert. Suggested donation is $25 general admission, $15 for students & seniors; all proceeds go to support the work of the St. Cecilia Society throughout the year. For more information, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the parish office at 203-866-5546.
