A Christmas Festival 2021 in Pictures

The Sacred Music Society of Our Lady Queen of Martyrs, under the direction of OLQM music director, Maestro David Close, performed a beautiful concert in our church on December 12, 2021. The Oratorio Society of Queens and members of the Our Lady Queen of Martyrs Choir were joined by guest artists John Easterlin (tenor) and Barbara Podgurski (pianist). Deacon Greg Kandra and his wife Siobhan introduced and read the Scripture passages during the lessons and carols portion of the program, which was then followed by a lively singalong with beloved Christmas carols and holiday favorites.
