Chorister’s Musical – April 29

This Sunday, April 29, St. George’s Chorister’s will present The Tale of the Three Trees by Allen Pote and Tom Long. Based on an American folk story, this musical tells of Jesus’ life from the perspective of three trees that dream about the future. The first tree wants to be a treasure chest, the second tree wants to be the mast of a ship, and the third tree wants to grow to great heights and reach toward God. Each tree’s dream is realized in surprising ways. This presentation takes place at the 10:30 a.m. Eucharist. Parishioners, family, friends, and the public are invited.
