I am pleased to invite your children to participate in the church’s Children’s Choir in 2015-16. Choir members need not read music, but they should be able to read words. New singers may join the choir at any time.
I have been the director of the Children’s Choir for the past year, along with being co-director before that. This year Marina Terkouafi will be our accompanist.
We are planning an exciting year for the choir, with a variety of music. As part of the Religious Education program, our primary goal is to help children become familiar with songs that are part of our cultural heritage and that express important values.
We will practice in Room 1, downstairs, on Sundays from 9:30 a.m. to 10:05 a.m., starting September 13. We plan to sing in the 10:15 a.m. services at which children are present for the first fifteen or twenty minutes, every two to three weeks. This fall we are singing on September 20, October 4, October 18, November 8, November 22, and December 13.
I welcome your participation and support. You can help us by ensuring that your child arrives at practices on time, as we will begin promptly at 9:30 a.m. If your child will miss a Sunday, please tell me by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by telephone at 630-388-9642, because sometimes specific children will have special roles.
Let me know if you play a musical instrument. We sometimes need pianists and guitarists.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions, suggestions, or concerns.
