Mont Vernon Messiah Sing! Is Canceled
The Mont Vernon Messiah Sing! Committee has regretfully decided that we must cancel this year's concerts. Our beautiful venue is unable to support the Covid 19 precautions for our rehearsals or concerts. We were preparing our 2021 program with cover design by a local artist, Lily Hipp, a student at Rhode Island School of Design. We will work with Ms. Hipp to modify her beautiful artwork for next year's concert program.
