Sarasota-Manatee Chapter-AGO




Festival of Sacred Music – January 25-26, 2020


The Festival Planning Committee and our clinician Tom Trenney have developed the program for the Festival. We have secured a 25% discount on all music purchased through Cliff Hill Music. They have created an order  page just for us - 2020 Sarasota AGO Festival.


We will also publish a public domain version of the Beethoven that Mr. Trenney would like to use.


We list the repertoire below with the timings before each selection. Click on each title to see/hear each selection as available. We hope that getting a glimpse of what is coming will inspire you all to engage your singers in this huge event. We encourage you to get to know Tom Trenney through his many clips on Youtube – simply open youtube and enter his name – there are workshops, services, sermons and rehearsals which show the multi-faceted and deeply spiritual Tom Trenney. We also ask that you copy this article and send it via email to all your singers and to any other musicians you know. Let’s be very intentional about making this event the best we can imagine!
