About Julie Cash
My approach to music is simple: it is all connected. Regardless of genre, volume or instrumentation it bonds us to each other and to the Creator. When humans sing together, through unified breath, their heartbeats slow and align. What a beautiful gift of unity!
Moving forward through our shared experience of these last months we have the opportunity to work together to create new connections. As we enter into a new chapter in music at First Presbyterian it would be a perfect time to consider trying out one of our musical opportunities to build new connections.
Brave of Heart, our worship band, welcomes both vocalists and instrumentalists. Familiarity with or ability to learn to read chord charts is important. Music reading is a plus. Participants rotate on a weekly basis to rehearse and provide music for services. Commitments are a two hour weekly Thursday rehearsal and an early Sunday morning rehearsal prior to service time. If you are interested in joining, we can arrange for you to audit a rehearsal and then join us to play or sing for additional rehearsals to see if it is a good fit for you.
The Chancel Choir is our vocal ensemble for men and women of high school age and beyond. We sing works from varied genres in unison as well as in parts. The ability to read music is very helpful for this group, but more important is the desire and willingness to learn. The choir meets Wednesday evening for rehearsal and has a warm-up rehearsal prior to Sunday service.
Both groups serve as a way to provide the congregation with a way to worship deeper through music. Through members sharing fellowship, prayers, concerns and joys, the groups also minister to those participating. Making music in itself can provide its own form of worship.
