Music and Worship News
Gather with your family and friends to give praise and thanks to God for all the bounty he has given us. This once-a-year service includes special prayers and music in celebration of Thanksgiving Day.
Mecklenburg Ministries will host this 39th annual citywide service, with Thanksgiving messages by The Reverend Dr. Ophelia Garmon-Brown, Rabbi Judy Schindler, and The Reverend Christy Snow, and special music by Interfaith Choirs and Ensembles. You are invited to bring canned foods for Loaves and Fishes. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org or 704-565-5455.
This newly founded program is directed by Rob Ridgell and includes two ensembles:
3rd - 5th grades - Wednesdays, 5:00 - 5:45 PM
Our strength is in our diversity, our love of music, and our dedication to young singers. We will offer two annual concerts, sing for occasional Sunday services, and share our music throughout the city and beyond. For more information, contact Rob Ridgell at 704-714-6942.
This year, through Leap of Faith funding, we are able to offer some of our city’s finest instrumentalists a place to grow and perform. Charlotte Symphony trombonist and WDAV radio personality Tom Burge has put together a new brass quintet. We will help establish this new chamber ensemble by inviting them to serve as our “Artists in Residence” this season. They will perform for Parish Day, Veteran’s Day, Christmas, and Easter, and will provide beautiful trumpet and trombone sounds throughout the year. Most recently, one of the ensemble’s members, John Parker, played trumpet for the funeral of Anne Tomlinson. Welcome to the CLT Brass!
Our community music initiatives are now reaching over 150 singers. These include parish-wide programs (Children's Music Clubs, Youth and Adult Bands/Choirs), outreach chorister programs at Rama Road Elementary and the Brookstone Schools, and Senior Choir at The Cypress. For more information on how to join these music programs, or to volunteer, please contact Rob Ridgell at email@example.com or 704.714.6942.
