First Parish Musicians Perform in Montreal

Seventeen members of the Chalice Singers and seven adults performed at the Unitarian Church of Montréal, Canada on Sunday, April 14. They were featured on the front stage of the church (rebuilt after a fire in the 1990s) throughout the Intergenerational Spring service, led by Rev. Diane Rollert (who lived in Concord, MA until moving to Canada) and Sandra Hunt, Music Director. Their church does not have an organ, but does have a beautiful Steinway piano with a hand-made inlaid case. After our visit two years ago, they bought a set of Choirchime bells and started a children's choir. They have a new website with lots of pictures of their sanctuary and members:
