Dr. David J. Hurd, Professor of Church Music, wishes to extend an invitation to members of the seminary community from Kent Tritle, Director of Cathedral Music at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine, to join the choir for the Recognition, Investitutre and Installation of the Rt. Rev. Andrew M.L. Dietsche as the sixteenth Bishop of New York on February 2, 2013.
Being a choir member will require advance study of two anthems and attendance at one rehearsal on Sunday, January 20, from 1:15pm to 3:15pm. Singers also will arrive early on the day of the consecration, an 8:30am call, for a warm-up and sound check. Choir registration is limited to the first 150 respondents who are able to make the full commitment to the rehearsal schedule and advanced preparation. You may register before January 15, 2013, using the ONLINE SIGN UP FORM. It would be lovely if you could name, as your parish, General Theological Seminary (even though the seminary is not technically a parish, but rather a faith community located with the geographic bounds of the diocese!).
