About Katherine Crosier

In addition to playing the organ I am interested in documenting life's special moments through journaling, scrapbooking, photography and slideshow production. My family just groans.

  1. All former LCH choristers are welcome to join us for all or any part of next season’s extravaganza. Let us know when you’re coming and we’ll send you the music and a rehearsal schedule.

  2. Decisions about the choristers will not be made until January 2011, and rehearsals will start in March. Only 40 singers will participate in this choir, and all except 2 or 3 of the slots are filled. If you would like to be considered for an audition, please send your contact information to lch@lchwelcome.org (email address, phone number, part you sing).
