The St. Paul's Episcopal Cathedral Choirs of Buffalo, under the direction of Mr. Jonathan Scarozza, provided the special music for a service of Evensong at Christ Church on Sunday evening, March 23rd at 4 pm.
The Evensong is a sung evening prayer service which comes from England.
Following the service, a dinner of soups, salads and desserts was given for all in attendance. A "meet and greet" was held before the service.
The Cathedral Choirs will be going on tour to England during the summer of 2015. They will sing and tour Ely Cathedral and Peterborough Cathedral while there.
