  2. Gina is managing the concert program development.  Thank you!  May 4 is the deadline for the concert program.   We can't promise that any ads/memorials/donations coming in after that date will be in the spring concert program.  We can accept donations/ads/memorials at any time after that date and acknowledge them in our next concert program (Christmas).

March 12 rehearsal

We will return to our regular rehearsal hours on Monday, March 12.   Everyone should report no later than 6:55 p.m. for a 7:00 p.m. start.   We will end rehearsals at 9:00 p.m.

We will be at a new venue for March 12, 19, 26.   Rehearsals will be at Manor Methodist Church in New Market.  The address is:  9320 N Congress St, New Market, VA 22844.  The front of the church is right on Rt. 11 which is the same as Congress.  The building is near but across the street from the church where we have concerts (Reformation Lutheran).  It is basically between the main intersection of New Market (at Old Cross Road/Hwy 211 and Hwy 11/Congress/Lee Hwy) and the corner where Hwy 211/Lee Hwy heads up the mountain toward Luray (Liberty Gas Station on that corner).

There are two doorways at the front of the church.  The one on the right is the sanctuary and the one on the left is the Fellowship Hall.   Use the Fellowship Hall entrance.   There are few steps up to the door.  In the photo below, Manor Methodist is the red brick building on the right.  The church has two parking lots, one adjacent to the church and one behind the church on John Sevier Road. There is also street parking in front of the church.
