Last weekend, 24 boy and girl choristers from Trinity Church, Boston, under the direction of Richard Webster, visited the Cathedral of the Incarnation. This visit was the continuation of a relationship that began last Spring when the Cathedral choristers visited Trinity Church.
The choristers and their chaperones stayed with Cathedral families over the weekend. On Saturday, following rehearsal, the group spent the afternoon together in New York City and returned to Garden City for a potluck supper. On Sunday, the girl choristers sang with the Cathedral Girls’ Choir at the 9:30am Eucharist and the boy choristers joined the Choir of Men and Boys for the 11:15am Eucharist.
“This visit was not only about singing good music together, but it was also about developing existing and beginning new friendships,” said Larry Tremsky, Canon Musician of the Cathedral. He added, “It is important for our young people to know that there are many others like them involved in this same ministry elsewhere. And, given how much time these young singers spend each week in the service of the liturgy, it’s really nice to be able to have occasions such as this as a reward for their efforts.” Both Mr. Webster and Canon Tremsky agreed that these visits will continue for years to come.
