Mary Petrich will be our soloist for the service on Sunday, March 3rd

She and Larry will be doing a program of classical saxophone music that day. Mary is a creative saxophonist who has been developing her own vision for the past 20 years. Her desire to push the boundaries has led her to many projects and collaborations, the latest being the album “Murmuration” with her quartet “OpenHand”.

Mary Petrich

With an abiding love for free style improvisation and the intimate collaboration of small group settings, she is equally at home playing standards and working in larger group formats. Her large group work includes the Phoenix Symphony, the Grammy award-winning Phoenix Chorale, the Az. Music Festival Orchestra, and the Nash Composer Coalition.

Healthy Packs

This Sunday, we will launch our annual drive to support the Healthy Packs program, which serves students in the Scottsdale Unified School District. Each year Healthy Packs supplies healthy weekend snacks (and sometime, vouchers) to at-risk students who often don’t receive necessary nutrition when they are away from school over weekends and holidays. Since Healthy Packs began, teachers report a noticeable improvement in the attentiveness of these students when they return to school on Mondays.

We think of Scottsdale as an affluent community (which it is comparatively), but there is great need in the unseen communities which represent the lower income and struggling families who also live here. CCOV chose Healthy Packs as a mission because it serves the community close to home. Please give as you can when we launch this mission February 17. Our goal is to support 10 students for a year with $2000 in giving. More information can be found at https://scottsdalecommunitypartners.org/prog…/healthy-packs/
