Before I leave, I want to give a plug to the National Association of Pastoral Musicians. Their annual convention will be held here in Chicago (actually in Rosemont—just up the road from WLP's home office). The convention runs from July 6 to 10. Being a major music publisher in the United States, WLP will be sponsoring many events, workshops, and concerts during the convention. A special highlight will be the event at Chicago's Symphony Center, home of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. The William Ferris Chorale, under the direction of Paul French will perform, as well as Fr. John Moulder and his jazz ensemble. This should be a terrific event. WLP's own Meredith Augustin will be singing in the lobby area before the concert begins. I've had a peek at the program for the evening and all the musicians gathered will be joining their voices together for a choral piece. It should be an exciting evening. The hotels around the Rosemont Convention Center are fairly inexpensive (for these kinds of things), so please consider attending the convention.
I hope you have a great weekend and that your celebration of Sunday Mass brings you closer to the Lord Jesus, the eternal song of the Father.
