Music Ministry

 THE ADULT CHOIR REHEARSES ON THURSDAYS AT 6:45 IN THE CHOIR ROOM AT THE CHURCH UNDER THE DIRECTION OF OUR MUSIC DIRECTOR JUSTAN FOSTER. Warm-ups and rehearsals will also take place on Sunday mornings at 9:30 AM in the choir room. For those of you who have pondered the idea of joining the choir, now is a good time to act on that thought!  New members are always welcome, even novices who are willing to learn.  Justan is a great teacher and has some exciting plans for our music program.

FAMILY SING SUNDAY-Come one, come all, any talent level, any age to sing! During the Ministry of Music on Palm Sunday morning, 3/25/18, those who are a part of this choir will present an easy to learn choral selection.  For those who would like to be part of this choir, you will need to participate in the rehearsals our Music Director, Justan Foster, will lead from 9:45 to 10:00 AM on Sunday, March 18th and March 25th.  This is open to anyone who would like to sing.  The song will not be difficult.

 

 

ORGAN CD FEATURING JUSTAN FOSTER! Justan recently recorded an organ CD at the First Reformed Church in Scotia. The recording features the works of American composers over the past 200 years on the June Selke memorial organ.  CDs are available in the narthex of the church, on the glass cabinet, with a $15 suggested donation.  All funds raised will benefit the organ fund.  We give thanks to the Allen Organ Company for donating these CDs.

 

 

DO YOU HAVE A SPECIAL OCCASION OR A LOVED ONE YOU WOULD LIKE TO SPECIALLY HONOR? Please consider donating a new anthem to our choir as gift that keeps on giving. While GRC does have a music budget, new choral music can become expensive quickly.  The average cost of an anthem is $2 to $5 per copy, and need to order at least 20 copies of each.  This means that new choral anthems per year can cost between $400 and $1000.  Speak with our Music Director, Justan Foster, if you are interested in providing the congregation with a gift that you and they can enjoy more than once!
