FLC CHOIR MEMBER WRITES:
As a member of the choir, I am writing to encourage you to try singing in the choir, no audition required. Below are links to a discussion by famous contemporary choral composer Eric Whitacre about why he is finally writing Christian religious pieces, and how singing in a church choir made a big difference in his life. The second link is to a recording of his first religious piece, which he discusses in the first video, ALLELUIA. The third video discusses choir as community. Whether or not you consider singing in the choir, the first video is well worth viewing. Participating in our music programs is very rewarding and enriching. Do not be shy; Jason and the choir are very welcoming and supportive. To sing in the FLC choir you should be able to carry a tune. Reading music well is a plus but many of us can follow those who read music better, and you could too. Jason will gladly answer any questions which you may have. I hope that you also will try contributing to the wonderful FLC music programs. Wishing you peace and joy. Mark Knutson
