Sing Glory Performance at Duncan Memorial United Methodist Church
The Chorale Welcomes A New Director
Philadelphia’s loss is suddenly Ashland’s gain. When former director, David Sinden, announced at the end of last season his opportunity to move closer to family and his planned departure for St. Louis, MO, members of the Central Virginia Masterworks Chorale search committee quickly got to work. The Chorale is pleased to have selected Dr. Ryan J. Tibbetts as its new artistic director.
The Masterworks Chorale’s 9th season began on Monday, September 14. Rehearsals are held in Duncan Memorial United Methodist Church in Ashland, from 7:00 pm to 9:30 pm. For more information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or Mary Grattan at 804-752-2550, or visit the Chorale’s website, www.cvamc.org
