Meet Holy Comforter's Choral Scholars
One of the ways that Holy Comforter connects with the wider community is through the sponsorship of a Choral Scholars program; that is, college-age music students and/or young professionals are invited to be part of the Holy Comforter Choir. Each year, four young singers are offered a small stipend to sing in the choir and serve as section leaders. The Choral Scholars program was begun in 2012 following the Vestry’s approval to fund the scholarships with a bequest from the estate of the late Carol Myers. Since that time, your financial gifts have kept the program running. Generous parishioners like you contribute almost $8,000 per year to ensure that we can offer talented young singers the opportunity to gain experience singing in a church choir, all while enriching and supporting the adult volunteers who comprise the majority of the choir. This year's Choral Scholars are (pictured from left to right): Jarvis Miller, bass; Rachel Strait, alto; Paul Malina, tenor; and Emily Sheffield, soprano. On Sunday, October 2 following the 10:00am Eucharist, come to Henry Hall and meet the Choral Scholars, hear about their lives away from church, and ask them questions. If you'd like to know more in the meantime, please reach out to Patrick Pope, Director of Music.
