June / July Music Choirs News

posted Dec 18, 2014, 12:22 PM by Henry McTague

Hello from Junior Choir!

Greetings from Junior Choir!  May has been a great month.  We enjoyed celebrating Nathan's birthday, as well as celebrating our love of music while singing during church on the 26th.  We were glad there was only one service so that everybody could hear us sing.  We sang some patriotic songs during rehearsal to honor Memorial Day.

June is always a very exciting month for the Junior Choir.  We can't wait for our third annual red carpet awards ceremony on June 13th.  Everybody dresses up, and we celebrate all the hard work we did throughout the year.  We are also looking forward to Children's Sunday, June 23rd, when we are going to work together with singers from the Senior Choir and Praise Team to sing a special song.  We will also celebrate a revival of the Angel Band!

After Children's Sunday, we will have a few weeks to relax.  We will be back to work on July 8th for Vacation Bible School.  VBS will run from July 8th to July 12th, and then the VBS kids will sing in service on July 14th.

If you have any questions about Junior Choir, or if you would like to join us for the last section of the year, we would love to have you!  Don't hesitate to email Roxanne at rprisby at comcast dot net.  Thank you so much for your support throughout the year.  We have had so much fun.  Have a wonderful summer!

News from the Bell Choir

The Junior and Senior Bell choirs are looking forward to participating in Music Sunday on June 9 with everyone that has been part of the music ministry this year. After that, John Brothwell, Rosemary Salkovitz, Sally Barney, Marian Kelsey (and Marian’s sister Susan) and Phyllis White will be representing the Lee Church to join 600 other New England handbell musicians for four days of workshops and rehearsals, culminating in a final concert on Sunday, June 30 at 3:00 in the Whittemore Arena.

We hope you can support the ringers by coming to that concert. If you’ve never heard 600 handbell musicians playing all at once, it’s a unique experience that shouldn’t be missed. The concert is free, but a donation is requested to support the scholarship fund that the Area 1 of the Handbell Musicians of America has in place to help choirs and ringers attend their many events.

If you’d really like to help out, the event planners need volunteers to usher at that final concert. If you are interested, please let Carlene know at 491-3047 or cdruesenberg at gmail dot com.
