Sister Dottie & The Salt Lake Men's Choir, Taxi Cab Appreciation Day & Westminster Wine 101



Sermon & Song
On Saturday, March 13, you’re invited to join the Salt Lake Men’s Choir and the one and only Sister Dottie S. Dixon for an evening of sermon and song, benefiting the Salt Lake Men’s Choir (aka “Utah’s Other Choir”). The evening begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Rowland Hall McCarthey Campus and will feature a light dinner and drinks, prepared by a genuine Cordon Bleu-trained chef.
