DONT MISS- Miae Park's ANNUAL SPRING CONCERT, Sun, May 15
The Music Program...
at the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd includes numerous musical opportunities for people of all ages. As we work toward a liturgical experience that brings our faith to life, we are in the process of broadening our musical ministry to include various styles and forms. This creative energy results in exciting and meaningful experiences for our worshipping congregation.
|Adult Choir||7:30 - 9:00 pm each Thursday|
The Senior Choir...
is available to all adults who wish to sing, or who wish to learn to sing. The focus of this choir is to support the weekly liturgies, psalmody, and hymnody, along with any other special musical needs.
Varied repertoire keeps the choir's music alive and present in the worship setting. Past repertoire has included old favorites, such as With a Voice of Singing by Martin Shaw and Beautiful Savior by F. Melius Christiansen, as well as classics such as In Thee Is Gladness by G. Gastoldi or the Halleluja Chorus from "Messiah" by Handel. Also, contemporary composers are featured such as Michael Hassell (jazz) Song of the Dove and Dadee Reilly Fishers of Men (Gospel) and Hairston's arrangement of Poor Ol' Lazarus.
This choir is also active ecumenically for special affairs that serve to increase our service to the church-wide community. This serves to unify the community in a spiritual sense, as well as socially.
Notes From the Senior Choir - (sample of a past Good Shepherd choir; submitted by Gil Vatter)
The stirring strains of the "Hallelujah Chorus" climaxed the Festival of Easter at Good Shepherd Church. A full house heard a choir of 18 voices make the rafters ring with the wonderful music of George Frederick Handel. Miae Park welcomed four singers from the congregation, who augmented the regular members of the senior choir. The senior choir rehearses every Thursday evening at 7:30 PM and everyone is welcome to join us, just for the evening or for the balance of the season. We have some great music coming up. Try it, you'll like it.
Members of the congregation are also encouraged to share their talents on their instrument of choice. Cantoring also can be a way for a singer to be incorporated into the worship service.
