I sat down at the piano yesterday to play through some music to generate ideas for the upcoming choir season. In the back of my mind I had already crossed off “find children’s musical for spring,” thinking that I would bring back a classic, “Oh Jonah!” However, as I began to play, I ran across the new, delightfully charming and inspiring musical, “Esther,” by Erik Whitehill. Possibilities abound!
I have been given the gift of musically sound, theologically-based music throughout my years of working with children’s choirs, thanks to Choristers Guild. I feel fortunate to have “oldies but goodies” to fall back upon, as well as new music to challenge. I am also grateful for the membership of Choristers Guild. I have learned so much from working together with other directors and leaders, and therefore, my choirs have benefitted.
I am writing today to let you know that I will be stepping down as President of the Middle TN Choristers Guild. Also, at this time, the members of our board are rotating off. We are in great need of new leadership!!
The national Choristers Guild support staff is ready and willing to help get a new Middle TN Choristers Guild board off the ground. There are funds in our account, and there is support to be had. We just need willing and able persons!
If you think you might be interested in being on the board and/or have questions, please contact Ellen Yost at email@example.com.
Thanks so much, and blessings on your upcoming year!
