June Black Music Fund The June Black Music Fund was begun to honor the late wife of Bishop William G. Black. While he was rector here, June was active in the choir and continued to support church music while in Cincinnati. The monies from this fund have enabled us to enjoy a wide variety of guest musicians, to offer workshops, and more. Public events such as the Advent Festival of Lessons and Music are in part supported by free will offering but also by the June Black Music Fund. Donations to this fund are always welcome.

Our membership with the Royal School of Church Music helps us maintain links with the glorious Anglican musical tradition. The 'Choral Scholars' outreach with the School of Music and the exceptional and historic Aeolian-Skinner organ create a solid basis for the choir.

Again, if you would like to sing in the choir and/or participate special events such as the Advent/Christmas season, men's and women's ensembles, handbells, working with children, etc., please contact Marsha Reilly.
