Our Music: 'Blended'
(Posted May 24, 2018)
Congratulations to the Community Children’s Chorus, directed by Patricia Moriarty, for their fine performance last Sunday afternoon. The various soloists in the beginning and throughout the concert intrigued the audience throughout the concert. The chorus composed of 23 children sang to an appreciative audience of over 60 people!
“Blended” is the word I heard on TV Saturday morning by one of the commentators who was covering the Royal Wedding. It was used to describe the participants and music of the service. The Kingdom Gospel Choir led by Karen Gibson sang an early 1960’s pop song titled “Stand by Me” made famous by Ben E. King, while a string ensemble, the church choir made up of men and boys, and along with the majestic pipe organ maintained tradition.
I posted in a recent E-Tidings explaining that at First Church, I have put a lot of thought into creating a “blend” of music each Sunday while continuing to focus on the theme of the Sermon. Incorporated in that planning is of course our Jazz Sundays.
Peace and Joy with a blend of music. - Jim Moriarty
