Work/Messiah Sing & Celebration

April 14-16, 2017


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; Parts 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, cello, flute, bassoon, oboe, clarinet, trombone, trumpet, and piano plus soprano, alto, tenor and bass.

The work:  There are always lots 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 let you know if there are any specific tools that you might bring.

Register by April 1st: $75/adults; $10/children & youth.

After April 1st: $100/adults; $50/children & youth.

Childcare will be provided for children age 9 and under.

Powell House is the conference and retreat center of the 

New York Yearly Meeting of the Religious Society of Friends (Quakers).
