Close-up Map: Parking situation
Do not park on Farragut south of the church ($50 fine from 8 pm to 10 pm)
(some residents are vigilant, so don't take chances).
Parking on Franklin north of the church is okay.

Church (sanctuary) itself on left; connecting building has choir room (not us).
We sing in the basement of the parish hall at the right. Enter parish hall from Overland Avenue door (other door locked), go down two short flights of steps.

Good acoustics for small group of singers.
