BUF Choir Stole Project

BUF Choir Stole Project


Work sessions every Wednesday at 5-6pm, followed by $5 fun community dinner (optional)

There will be no session on November 23rd.


Enjoy fellowship and friendship while producing 80 choir stoles by December 21st.


Assembly line method, working in teams to cut, pin, sew and iron.

All skill levels welcome. Work will have oversight by team members.


Each Wednesday, work stations will get set up by 4:30 p.m. in the library.

Visiting will be accompanied by a progression of tasks for individuals and teams.

There will be a lot of repetitive tasks that can be learned with the assistance of team mentors. People with a proficient skill set for sewing will be assigned to one of our two sewing machines and have the added support of teams to iron and give a final overview of the final product.


All work related equipment and materials can be safely stored in our designated locked storage area. If individuals wish to store items please write your name on anything that you would like returned. We will need to finish our sessions and clean up before the community meal.


As our project coordinator it is my hope that we grow strong as a team and enjoy the process as much as the satisfaction of accomplishing our goal. If anyone has any questions please feel free to contact me any time. I value your volunteer time and will do my part to organize our time as efficiently as I am able.

Welcome back message from Kevin

Dear BUF Singers and Friends

I am excited about getting our BUF choirs going again!  Our first rehearsal will be on September 7.

More info about the year, including our Transylvania Pilgrimage, will be coming out in a few days.

In the meantime, here’s the low-down:

BUF Chalice Choir

-Mixed choir, all welcome, no auditions, no previous choral experience necessary

-rehearse Wednesdays 6:45-8pm in the BUF Sanctuary, starting on September 7

-Please bring potential new members along, whether they have sung in choir before or not.

-Sunday Performances: Sep 11; Oct 2; Nov 6; Dec 4; Jan 8; Feb 5; Mar 5; Apr 16

-2 Special Events: Dec 15 Evening Solstice Concert;  Feb 12 Afternoon Interfaith Festival

Phoenix Ensemble

-Used to be called Chamber Choir

-Select SATB ensemble, 16-20 voices, must also be a member of Chalice Choir

-rehearse Wednesdays 8:10-9pm in the BUF Sanctuary, starting September 14

-Sunday Performances: Sep 25; Oct 23; Nov 20; Jan 29; Feb 26; Mar 26

-Other community performances to be announced

-fun, user-friendly auditions will be held after the Chalice choir rehearsal on September 7

-Singers can’t also be in Womens Ensemble, because the two groups practice at the same time

I’ll be looking for a quartet of section leaders. It would be nice for these 4 singers to be in both choirs

and to be able to sight-sing a part without help from the piano.
