Of Special Interest
Correction: The venue for Trinity Choir's St. John Passion event was incorrect in last week's newsletter.  The correct venue is St. Paul's Chapel, on Broadway at Fulton Street.  Presented in its original liturgical context, the congregation/audience will have the opportunity to sing the four-part Chorales alongside the Trinity Choir and Trinity Baroque Orchestra.
