Seminary Music Groups Want You!
See/contact Dr. Folkemer in person or at sfolkemer@Ltsg.edu.
The Seminary Choir is open to everyone, regardless of singing ability, music education or musical experience. The Seminary Choir serves as the musical leadership for weekly eucharists. The Seminary Choir sings anthems, psalm settings, hymn stanza arrangements and settings of assigned scripture readings. It is a safe, welcoming place to share your talents, great or modest, and for community members to enjoy a recreational release from the pressures of everyday seminary life. Rehearsals are Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, from 12:55-1:25pm and Wednesdays from 1:25-1:55pm. The Seminary Choir sings at Wednesday (and special event) eucharists. Even if you can only make 2 of the 4 rehearsals weekly, you are most welcome.
The Seminary Brass Ensemble is open to all brass players in our community with at least an intermediate playing ability. Rehearsals are once per week at a time tbd. The Ensemble plays 2 to 3 times a semester at eucharists and makes a day trip to a congregation in Region 8 late in the Spring Semester.
Organists/Pianists/Instrumentalists. We use a wide variety of musical styles of worship every semester, many of which we prefer to lead with a pick-up band. If you play most any band instrument, or folk instrument, at least at an intermediate level, and are willing to help serve our community in leading worship, contact Dr. Folkemer asap.
