OCTOBER MUSIC NOTES
Well, the choir was back today (9/12) and I believe everyone who sang was happy to be “back in the saddle” again! We are always open to having new members join with us to sing. We meet on Sundays around 9:00 for coffee and TRY to start singing by 9:15. If you have ever thought about joining the choir, why not give it a try!
From time to time I receive mail that I hang in the choir room, and I realize I need to be sharing it with the congregation. The latest is from Fox Chapel Presbyterian Church Special Event Music Series Fall 2021.
The first event will already be past by the time this newsletter comes out, but I will have Denise put it in the bulletin.
The other events are Sunday Oct 31 at 4:00 PM, The Diamante Orchestra, a Pittsburgh ensemble will be performing a repertoire of Classical, jazz, Latin and many other styles. A freewill offering will be taken.
On Saturday, Dec 4 at 7:30, a Holiday Choral Concert by the Pittsburgh Chorale will perform holiday tunes, traditional Christmas carols and popular favorites. Tickets can be purchased at the door, or by calling 412-635-7654, on online at www.PCCsing.org.
Sunday Dec 12 at 11:00 am, the annual Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols will be presented by the Fox Chapel Festival Chorus, the West Virginia Brass Quintet, the FCPC Children’s Choir and the Fox Chapel Ringers. It is free, with a reception to follow.
And that's about all the news I have for now!
God meets us where we’re at…
As though the muddied water becomes clear---
As though all at once His voice appears;
We tune to His frequency, & our lives reunite…
Same place---same songs,
Aren’t you glad, we are as different as the stars in the sky.
Yet we all have our place;
Our vision---His own…
So I’m playing the Memory Unit,
I feel as though I’m not up to par:
Jill is helping Peggy w/her ice cream treat.
All of a sudden I hear a voice I’ve never heard before.
Usually Peggy taps & claps to the beat---
It’s the Patriotic medley & Peggy is singing her heart out:
“God meets us where we’re at”
We can never assume to know God’s ways---
What may seem to us: a lack of energy!
An unintended lull?
May just be God calling His People Home…
Sometimes the less said, is the more spoken…
