THE SMCA 2018 winter CONCERT, "joy to the world", was held december 9, 2018 at st. mary’s ryken high school. It was wonderful! thank you so much to those that attended.
A letter from the director:
Welcome prospective, and, current members of St. Maries Singers!
We invite you to join us in our sixth season with St. Maries Choral Arts. Over the last few years SMCA has been flourishing, most recently under the leadership of our Director of Choral Activities, T.C. O’Brien and SMCA Chair, Bill Horn. For the fall semester, our St. Maries Singers Director, Sarah Lorek will be taking a sabbatical, as she was selected as St. Mary’s County Public Schools Teacher of the Year! This opportunity requires traveling, and additional out of school commitments. She felt it best to take a step back for the season to be sure SMS received her complete focus in the spring. Stepping in as Interim Director for this season is our accompanist, Jennifer Drake, and we are thankful for her support and dedication to St. Maries Singers (and SMCA). Jennifer has programmed a wonderful winter experience that is sure to make you feel JOYFUL!
We will be accompanied by the fantastic Erin Tennyson this season! Erin will be accompanying St. Maries Singers, St. Maries Musica, and conducting St. Maries Children’s Choir in conjunction with Phoebe Kammerer! Way to go, Erin!
If you haven’t registered, you are still able to join us this season. Please feel free to invite a friend, we love to have new faces! Fees can be submitted to Mike Judd (SMCA Treasurer) at rehearsals, or can be paid online. Details regarding events this season, including programming, are below.
