April 14 -16

This weekend has become a favorite of many F/friends and families. Whether you come to work, work and sing, work and play an instrument, or work and provide the audience for the choir - there's a place for you. We'll have childcare for the young ones while we work.

The music: We will do Part I of Handel's Messiah on Friday evening; Part II & III on Saturday evening, ending with the "Hallelujah Chorus," and the "Hallelujah chorus" AGAIN on Easter morning. To make it happen, you need to bring your own instrument. If you have a score, bring that, too. We've had people playing violins, violas, cello, flute, bassoon, oboe, clarinet, trombone, trumpet, and piano plus soprano, alto, tenor and bass.

The work:  There are always logs of things to do inside and out to get Powell House ready for spring and summer.  Let us know you are coming, and we will elt you know if you can bring any specific tools with you.

Register by April 5th: $75/adults; $10/children & youth

Childcare will be provided for children 9 and under.

Have a big family?  Add each person's name and age in the comment box on the registration page and settle up when you get here!
