What an awesome service! Each group displayed enormous talent on their own, but when they all came together, with one group or another processing or recessing, or with the Women's Chorale in the balcony at the rear, it was very inspirational!

All of the groups gave an impressive and entertaining program. It was obvious that everyone involved is not only very talented, but also very dedicated to their craft.
