Calling All Musicians – Instrumentalists & Singers!!: An Invitation to Share Your Musical Gifts in 2016!!
I am so excited to begin my year with all of you as your Artist in Residence. I have always known of the musical talent in this congregation over the years, and I’ve already been blessed to experience so much of it in the last few services in which I’ve been able to participate.

I wanted to give a general “all call” to the entire Old First community for any and all musicians, including singers and instrumentalists,  to share your gifts with us throughout the year, in whatever form is most feasible in your lives. This call goes out to folks already actively involved in the choir, as well as singers and instrumentalists who might have been sitting in the pews and contemplating  making music with us. This is your time!

I personally love music of almost every style,  and want to learn from this community the styles in which you enjoy playing or singing, as I design the upcoming spring season here. In order to do that, I need to get to know those of you who would love to share your gifts as soon as possible, and start conversations about your skills and availability. Part of these conversations will include scheduling some time for you to come and play or sing for me so I can get to know you better.

Please contact me as soon as possible if you would like to  join the choir, and/or share your instruments with us. At that time, I will then  send you the season schedule from which you can discern your level of participation.

The best way to connect with me is either via email <holly@oldfirstucc.org> or my home phone, which can be found in Realm.

Looking forward,

Holly Phares
Artist in Residence
