The Service is at 1 pm; the Call Time is 12 noon, in Rear Balcony Choir Loft—where you can see the organ pipes if you go into the Sanctuary. The entrance is on the right, immediately after entering the Sanctuary from the Main Lobby, Long winding staircase: take your time. Top of the Staircase: Go through the RIGHT HAND DOOR. Be very careful negotiating the steps of the choir loft
We will combine forces with the Unitarian Universalist Choir, and their director Mark Sumner. He and Larry have agreed to combine our small vocal forces in order to offer a much better tribute to Maria. We'll be doing the Lacrymosa from the Mozart Requiem, and the Sanctus from the Lord Nelson Mass.
Suggested Dress: muted colors or black.
Reception: Maria’s family asks attendees at the service to bring food or flowers to the reception.
Street parking on Franklin Street: metered, be careful of time limits. UU Underground Parking Garage: not recommended because of different church functions happening at the same time. However, if you try it, get in FAR LEFT LANE of Starr King Street (curved 1-way street between Gough and Franklin). Entrance almost at Franklin Street: may seem like you missed it. TURN LEFT into descending driveway, STOP just before the gate (it may seem like you’re too close, but you’re not). GATE will swing out; you drive in…and good luck.
