followed by Open Console

Details on the organ can be found at www.frsuu.org/the-organ

Service-playing is a crucial skill, often neglected in today’s nest conservatories and something many of us don’t bother to consider before Sunday morning. And yet the future of the church depends on it! We bemoan our seemingly mute congregations or lament frequent requests for a praise chorus over “All creatures of our God and King.” But what part can we play in the revival of traditional congregational song, a now counter-cultural activity? Come discuss best-practices of basic service playing and some simple ways to encourage our congregation to pick up the hymnal through an invigorating approach to hymn playing. While there are some basic rules, we all have different approaches. Come with some of your thoughts on hymn playing to share. Topics will include tempo, registration, introductions, reharmonizations, ways to practice, and fun, easy tricks to spice things up.

Volunteers: We would like to have a 2-3 participants to play “Come thou fount of every blessing” (Nettleton) and “When I survey the wondrous cross” (Rockingham).  It would be fun to hear how different players approach these hymns differently and discuss. More of a compare and contrast than a masterclass situation. Maybe an intro, a verse or two, and a final verse?
