Schola Nova

“Sacred choral music in the Pioneer Valley since 1982”


The foundation of Schola is the pure “Love of Music” and the joy it can bring to the community.  They are always so very pleased to be appearing at Holy Name Church.  As always, there will be a Wine & Cheese Reception at the Social Center following the performance. The $2.00 donation enables us to have an accurate head count for the refreshments.  Hope you can join us!  Tickets go on sale the weekends of February 17th & 24th.
