A Letter from The Roberts Chorale
Dear Roberts Chorale family,
As I am sure you all know, our school has closed for the time being due to the rapidly-spreading COVID-19. This means that our performances that were scheduled to occur during this self-quarantine period have been cancelled. Performances scheduled after our tentative return are subject to cancellation, we will keep you updated on the status of those performances as we receive the information.
While we are sad that we will be unable to share the rest of our music with you all, we at The Roberts Chorale have much to be thankful for. This year, we were able to take part in many amazing concerts, experience beautiful worship together, and grow so incredibly close as a family. This year was full of many unique blessings, and all of our Chorale members are so grateful to have spent the time we were given together.
Although we are all disappointed by the recent outbreak of COVID-19 and the cancellation of life as we know it, our concern or the health and well being of our members and of those who attend our concerts is greater than our disappointment. Therefore, The Roberts Chorale will embrace social distancing with gusto Instead of worshipping collectively at rehearsals and concerts, we will instead choose to engage in praise and worship from our homes. We trust in God's promises for a hope and a future, and we will continue to proclaim Jesus name to the nations. We will sing God's praises from our windows, balconies, and rooftops. Above all, we will pray without ceasing for those affected by COVID-19.
Thank you for your support and prayers this year. Please stay home, stay safe, and stay singing. This, too, shall soon pass.
The Roberts Chorale
"God is our refuge and strength,
a very present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear though the earth gives way,
though the mountains be moved into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam,
though the mountains tremble at its swelling.
There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God,
the holy habitation of the Most High.
God is in the midst of her; she shall not be moved;
God will help her when morning dawns.
The nations rage, the kingdoms totter;
he utters his voice, the earth melts.
The Lord of hosts is with us;
the God of Jacob is our fortress.
