This is a great year already. All the choirs are reunited and having fun rehearsing for upcoming performances. It’s great to see everyone again, and we even have some new voices.
I see new faces in the congregation as well. I look forward to meeting the new folks and continually nurturing the bonds already formed in previous years as well.
We are planning the Concert Series for the year. The first concert will be Sunday November 10th at 4:00, “Man vs. Piano 2: The Rematch” It will be an afternoon of piano music and levity in which I will once again battle it out with my life-long nemesis, the piano. I guarantee smiles and giggles… and many styles of music.
I hope you will feel comfortable reaching out to me for any reason. Contact me if you or a family member are interested in any of our choirs. Also, let me know if you would like to check out Music Committee. (An awesome group of extremely nice people). Feel free to email me your favorite song, or musical aspirations, words of wisdom, or any feedback whatsoever. Or, just say hi. I never get the chance to talk to everyone on Sunday because I’m always running around, but I am interested in everyone’s musical life at First Parish.
Non sequitur alert - I just want to take a moment to thank everyone for their support when my brother died last spring. It is deeply meaningful to be part of a community in which we can mourn each other’s losses together; feel joy together; search for meaning together. First Parish has taught me that we are all in this together and that we all have joys and sorrows. We are not alone, because we have each other.
Your Music Director,
