On August 23, the Funtastics will be given a tour of the Moravian Music Foundation. The Foundation houses over 10,000 music manuscripts and early printed editions which represents a great diversity in music style and sources spanning hundreds of years. The Funtastics will have an opportunity to visit the vault at the Foundation and view some treasures there, including a copy of the first edition of the Star-Spangled Banner, and the only known hand-copied manuscript of works by one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s sons. After our tour we have lunch at the Five Points Restaurant. The bus will leave the at 10 a.m. Register your attendance with the Church office by August 20.
New Philadelphia, Moravian Church, all band musicians are invited! The band will meet each Wednesday from 7 p.m. – 8 p.m. in the church fellowship hall (on the God’s acre side of the church) June 6 through August 29. We will play chorales from the green and blue books that are selected by the players. A different local band leader will direct each night. This is a great opportunity to meet new players, learn a new instrument or part, and keep those lips in shape over the summer.
