WELCOME LETTER – Welcome Letter Invitation_GhostRanch Chorale Adam Waite

Course Name: Ghost Ranch Chorale

Start date: July 7, 2019

End date: July 13, 2019
Check-in begins at 3:00pm
at the Welcome Center, Sunday, July 7                                                                                


Please join me as we create new experiences and community together, in a way that’s authentic and true to the spirit of Ghost Ranch. 

We’ll learn and sing music by a collection of American composers from all walks of life, bound together by their shared message of Peace, Justice, Love and Compassion. 

We’ll be joined by Montview Church’s Associate Minister of Music, pianist and organist Barbara Hulac: an expert accompanist who has helped rehearse and teach nearly every major work in the standard choral repertoire over her 40 year career. 

Also with us is Leena Waite (to whom I’m fortunate to be married!) – a deep and evocative violinist, whose unique background in music and ministry is felt and heard in each and every note. 

The Ghost Ranch Chorale promises to be a special week of music making with some very special people.  If you haven’t already registered, I hope you’ll consider being a part of it all.
