Ministry Concert Days

Ministry Days are planned for once a semester. Locations include Richmond State School, nursing homes, and other community groups.  Students should plan to be busy most of the day (9:00-3:00). The purpose of these days is to bring music to people who might not otherwise have an opportunity to hear. Students are encouraged to reach out to listeners through a handshake, a kind word, and a smile.

All students are required to wear Concert Dress.

Picture Day

Date, time and location to be announced.  Students should arrive already dressed in Concert Dress


 Invitations with directions to concert location will be available a few weeks before each concert.  Feel free to invite your friends and family to our concerts.

The warm up schedule for each concert typically starts at 4 P.M.; precise instructions will be announced close to concert time.  In order to have sufficient time for all Ensemble members to warm up, it is  imperative that each member arrives at the scheduled time.
