Ensemble Singing Returns to Saint Mark’s Cathedral

with No Comments

Quartets resume February 17, at the 7 p.m. Ash Wednesday liturgy.

After a three-month hiatus during which only vocal soloists were permitted to sing during religious services, updated guidelines now once again allow small groups of singers to sing in harmony. (See Governor Inslee’s Proclamation 20-25.12 and the updated Religious and Faith-Based Organizations reopening guidance.)

While the updated guidelines allow for choirs of up to 15, livestreamed services at Saint Mark's will feature a quartet of singers beginning with the evening service on Ash Wednesday, February 17, with the possibility of larger groups of singers in the future. Singers will be spaced widely apart, and will remain masked at all times.

The Compline Choir has made a similar decision. Live broadcasts with a quartet of singers resume on February 21.

Keep an eye on the Reopening Planning webpage for the most up-to-date information.
