Here we go again! It’s time for a new choir year to begin! Clean the robes, put the pencils in the folders, and tune the choir room piano. Let there be music!
There is simply nothing like the excitement and fear of that first rehearsal. The conferences of the summer are behind you… now you should be relaxed and ready, but there are so many unanswered questions!
Will the group be balanced?
Will the new members fit in and feel welcome?
Will the new music arrive on time for that first WEDNESDAY rehearsal?
Will the new pastor connect with your musical direction?
Did I take my blood pressure medicine?
We have all been there with the anxiety and the energy of a new year of potential staring at us at that first rehearsal.
This issue of WorshipSongsOnline is dedicated to speaking to the new opportunities awaiting us in the weeks ahead with our groups. Whether you are in a season of rebuilding, a time of sustaining, or even a moment of celebration with your program, we hope the ideas and resources presented by our BLOGGERS will be a blessing to your as your serve.
