The Fourth Sunday of Advent will feature a musical offering by the Creator Chime Choir. Most of us began as chime beginners (myself included). We all experienced the challenge and reward of making music with chimes.
I invite you to do this exercise with someone at home or even over the phone. Take a sentence both of you know- “Mary had a little lamb whose fleece was white as snow.” Speak it together, alternating who speaks which word. It might not sound quite right at first. The rhythm one would naturally use in speaking disappears between two or three people. That is how we make music in the chime choir -- one word (note) at a time.
I am very proud of what these four accomplished together. Some came in knowing how to read music, others did not. Chime choir is inviting and challenging regardless of prior musical experience. I hope that you enjoy our offering of “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” and our planned Christmas offerings.
If you would like to make some music with us, we meet safely (masks + gloves + distance) in the parish hall at noon on Sundays.
