Message from the Dean 

Dear Colleagues,

On March 20, the annual David A. Weadon Memorial Concert will feature the Morehouse College Glee Club (Atlanta, GA) in concert at Miller Chapel, Princeton Theological Seminary at 7 p.m. The concert is free and open to the public. A reception will follow the concert.

Looking further into March, we have our annual members’ recital on March 24 at the Princeton University Chapel at 2:30 p.m. This also will be an wonderful program and an opportunity to hear and support our chapter members. There will be a time of reception after the recital at Nassau Presbyterian Church.

Hope to see you all at one of these events.

Regards,
Noel Werner
