Christ is born! Glorify Him!
What a glorious night of singing! We are so grateful to all who joined us for this annual event. The hall was packed with over 150 attendees, many who attended last year.
Throughout the night, in addition to singing together, we asked for contributions to sustain us for the upcoming year. Thank you to ALL who gave towards this fundraising effort! We raised over $6,000 exceeding our donations from last year.
We were also joined by choirs from St Nicholas Orthodox Cathedral, Ss. Peter & Paul Antiochian Orthodox Christian Church, and All Saints of America Orthodox Church who sang many different hymns for the feast of Nativity.
We want to extend our thanks to several different groups and individuals:
- St. Luke Serbian Orthodox Church thank you for hosting us!
- Fr. Alessandro Margheritino and Dn. Alexander Woodill for serving vespers for us at the beginning of the evening
- His Beatitude, Metropolitan Tikhon for his continued support of the choir. He was traveling and unable to join us, but we recorded a video message for him in his absence!
- Anita Childs, pianist extraordinaire, for leading us through many of the carols
- All of the members of the Archdiocesan Choir who donated an incredible spread of food, helped with set up and clean up, sang at vespers, took pictures, and so much more!
- The many people who contributed funds throughout the evening. We are grateful for your generosity. If you missed out and still want to donate, you can do so at archdiocesanchoir.org/donate. We will count any additional donations before the end of 2023 towards this fundraising effort!
This evening is truly a remarkable time for fellowship, collaboration, prayer, and singing together for the glory of God! If you missed us this year, mark your calendar for next year.
