Congregational Singing Lessons
Congregational Singing Lessons We have outlined a curriculum that in fifteen minute segments will carry us through several months of non-Supper evening services, covering singing in harmony, in unison; the volume of the congregation’s voice, the tempo at which a hymn is sung, and several other considerations bearing on how well a congregation sings a particular hymn. We have in mind eventually beginning to include in the bulletin specific instructions for the congregation’s singing of certain hymns. This should be both fun and useful!
Rehearsals are at 4:45 pm on Sundays, under Florence Rayburn’s direction. For more information contact the Church Choir Director, Florence Rayburn.
Choristers meet each Wednesday evening, 7:00 to 8:15. To register your treble-voiced child (ages 7 +), contact Melissa McMillan.
