On Sunday, Sept. 22 at 4 p.m., the Wagner College community is invited to an interment service for the ashes of the late Wagner music professor, Dr. Ronald Cross, at Park Avenue Christian Church, on the corner of East 85th Street and Park Avenue in Manhattan. (For further directions, visit the church website.)
The Wagner College Choir and Chamber Singers, both under the direction of Roger Wesby, will be singing. There will also be an opportunity for former Collegium/Choir members or other alumni and friends to sing. The music will be, “Thou Knowest Lord the Secrets of Our Hearts,” from Purcell’s “Funeral Music for Queen Mary.” (Click here to download the music.) Please meet at the church at 2 p.m. to rehearse this piece and some hymns under Dr. Wesby’s direction.
The service will last around 45 minutes, after which there will be a reception.
