Hello From the Choirs!

posted Dec 18, 2014, 12:30 PM by Henry McTague

I am very happy to be back this fall for my second year as Senior Choir Director, and my fourth year as Junior Choir Director.  This work brings me great joy!!  We were all so happy to reunite this September, and we warmly welcomed our new members.  Kaden Paré joined Junior Choir, and we are excited that Maggie Lou is home from Singapore.  Senior Choir welcomed Bill and Lynda DuVall as well as Debbie Cayer.  There is never a bad time to give choir a try!  We are also collectively excited to welcome Jane Goodwin to the Lee Church community as the Junior and Senior Bell Director.  She is going to fit right in!

I would like to thank everyone who volunteered their time and talent to be a summer music contributor.  Dave Townson, Katrina Rhodes, Brandy Irish, the Praise Team, Dan Beck, Julie McTague, Courtney Dionne, Gail Kindberg, Nick Pothier, and Roy Ward (what a pleasant surprise!) all helped out.  Thanks also to Andrew and Diane for their wonderful accompaniment.  Amethyste Spardel, the theramin player who visited last summer, was signed up to play, but had to make a last minute cancellation.  We were so glad that she decided to reschedule for October.  What a treat!

Please consider signing your child up for Junior Choir.  Our membership is low and it does make me worry.  If you think you might like to give Junior Choir a try, we rehearse on Thursday evenings from 5-6 in the Sanctuary.  Along with learning our praise music, we do fun yoga poses, play singing games, and sometimes share a snack.  It’s a lot of fun.  If you are interested in trying Senior Choir, we rehearse in the Sanctuary on Thursday evenings from 7-8:30.  It is a wonderful way to make friends in your church community.

Feel free to email me with any questions at my (new!) email, roxanneleeoconnor at gmail (dot) com.  On a personal note, I would like to thank you for all the cards and kind words celebrating my marriage.  It was a fun summer!
