CHOIR & ORCHESTRA RETURNING TO WORSHIP

June 18, 2020

 

 

Dear Choir & Orchestra,

 

Greetings!!!  I am writing to update you on our future plans for the Music Ministry of our church.  Please take into consideration that some - if not all - of the information below is subject to change.

 

Starting Sunday, July 5 we will begin adding a modified choir and orchestra back to our morning worship services.

  • Choir

    • Loft participation will be limited to 17 people

      • This is in accordance with social distancing guidelines requiring 6ft between individuals.

    • Lead in both morning worship services (9:00am & 11:00am)1

      • 9:00am

        • Choir will meet at 8:44 in the Choir Room.

        • Remain in the loft for the entire 9am service.

      • 11:00am

        • Choir will meet at 10:44 in the Choir Room.

        • Will exit the loft prior to the message.

    • No choir anthems

      • Since there are no rehearsals, we are unable to prepare any choral anthems.

    • No robes during this time.

  • Orchestra

    • Instrumentalists will be spaced out across the platform

      • This is in accordance with social distancing guidelines requiring 6ft between individuals

    • Will play in both morning worship services (9 & 11am)

      • 9:00am

        • Orchestra will rehearse at 8:00 in the Sanctuary.

        • Remain on the platform for the entire 9am service.

      • 11:00am

        • Meet at 10:44 in the Choir Room.

        • Exit the platform prior to the message.

    • Preludes may be added depending of participation

1-If there are more choir members than available chairs and we are able to fill the loft for both services then ​we will have 2 choirs (group A at the 9am and group B at the 11am service).  If we follow this format, the 11:00 choir will remain in the loft for the entire service.

 

If you are not comfortable in participating in choir or orchestra at this time please do not feel pressured to return.  No one will think less of you for taking necessary precautions for you and your family.  The decision is strictly up to you to choose what is best in your situation.
