discount tickets
Sunday 15 December 2013
4 p.m.
Corpus Christi Church, NYC

Dear Club Members

If you are interested in a group-discounted ticket to hear Anonymous 4 sing on Sunday 15 December (4 p.m.) at Corpus Christi Church (Morningside Heights, just off the Columbia University Campus) can you email me immediately—and certainly by this Thursday (7/18)—so I have an idea of how many tickets to purchase. If you say yes I will take that as a firm commitment even though you don’t have to pay immediately. The discounted rate is $20.
