Methodist Choir Will Sing
The Epworth Junior Choir of the First Methodist Church will present a public sacred music concert at 7 p.m. Sunday.
Forty-four members of the 98-voice choir are junior high school students and the rest are fifth and sixth graders. They will sing mostly three-part harmony.
Compositions by Palestrina, Haydn, Verdi, Mozart, Rachmaninoff, Saint-Saens, and Korentz will be sung.
Arrangements by Mrs. Elizabeth H. Correll, choir director, and one of her own compositions will be included in the program. Mrs. Correll is a music supervisor for the Ann Arbor Public Schools. She and organist Mrs. Margaret M. Peters are serving their 13th year with the choir, which has not presented a public worship service in five years.
Miss Sue Peters will play a clarinet solo during intermission, and Miss Barbara DeHart will play flute obligato for one composition.
Mrs. Phillip W. Robinson is robe chairman for the group, assisted by Mrs. Joseph Mitchell.
The sacrament of Baptism will be included in the 9 a.m. service on Sunday at First Methodist. There will be a special feature for church school children in grades one through six after which they will go to their Sunday school departments.
Children in nursery and kindergarten departments will meet in their rooms as usual on Sunday. Care will be provided for crib and toddler-age children from 8:30 a.m. to 12:15 p.m.
The Methodist Youth Fellowship Choir will sing for the 9 a.m. service, and the Chancel Choir will sing for the 11:15 a.m. service. Lester McCoy will direct the choirs and Mrs. Mary M. Stubbins will be organist. The Rev. Hoover Rupert will preach for both services.
