November Music Notes

What? Wait a minute...October's already gone? Well, at least it was a great month, thanks to all of you. I've appreciated and enjoyed every aspect of each service. Thank you to all our wonderful choirs. Our beloved Senior Choir is sounding amazing and always working. It was great to have Junior and Intermediate Choirs share their talents with us on October 16th. A special thank you to The Meetinghouse Ringers for playing on the 30th. They are taking the show on the road on November 4th and playing the new member service at Temple Emanuel in Lowell. I'm a lucky music director to have so many skilled and enthusiastic people to work with. All the choirs are thriving and Carol Choir has started rehearsing. Lots of fun.

I'm looking forward to performing on Saturday, November 5th at our first concert of the second season in the First Parish Concert Series. I will be playing a solo concert of improvisatory piano. It will be energetic, emotional, and very fun. I hope you'll all be there. (And bring a friend) It's a symbolic kick off for our Accessibility Fund Capital Campaign, to which all proceeds go. (Recommended Donations: $15 adults, $8 kids 12 and under). I'll keep you all posted as to other upcoming concerts.

I am excited about November and December, especially Intergen services. It's just such a beautiful time of year, and of life in general. There's so much to look forward to...

As always, feel free to contact me any time.

October Music Notes

It's hard to believe that September is already gone and fall is here. I am very excited for the coming months. The choirs are sounding great and there's a lot of music to be made. 

I am playing a solo piano concert of improvisations and original compositions on Saturday November 5th at 7:00, in the Sanctuary. More on this later. Suffice to say it's going to be a lot of fun. This begins the second year of the First Parish Chelmsford Concert Series. A primary purpose of the series is to bring new people in, so it's a good opportunity to invite friends who might not otherwise attend a church.

Here's a quick reminder of some musical opportunities at First Parish. Junior choir (age 8 through grade 7) meets after Church 11:30-12:15 in the Sanctuary. Intermediate Choir (grade 8 through high school) rehearses 12:15-1:15 in the Sanctuary. Carol Choir (age 3 through 7) will start rehearsing soon and will meet at 12:15 in the sanctuary. For the adults, Senior Choir meets every Thursday night at 7:30 in the sanctuary and Bells on Wednesday nights at 7:30.

As always, feel free to contact me anytime with any questions about the music program.

Your music director,
Steve Zocchi
