We, the leadership and members of the Society, directly sense a “native” closeness to this body of music and are enthused to be able to add our voices to the celebration. We also look forward to formal representation at the concert of all churches in our community. We all have been enriched by the Protestant Reformation in so many aspects of our lives, and we know that the universal language of music will bring us together in a unique spirit of joy and renewal.
