Fusion:   Always looking up for inspiration…    

First United Methodist has a music ministry for every age and stage of life to praise God through instruments, hymns, and song.

 

I am excited to announce that our first rehearsal will be on 10/22!  Rehearsals will take place every other Thursday, rotating with Fusion.  Bells & Choir ensemble rehearsal times are shown below.  In the meantime, keep singing for the glory of God in your car, in the shower, with your families!

Hi all!

6:00 PM – 6:13 PM Choir Arrival (door locks at 6:13 PM)
6:15 PM – 6:45 PM Choir Rehearsal
6:45 PM – 7:00 PM Sterilizing and Creating a safe environment for the next group
7:00 PM – 7:13 PM Bells Arrival (door locks at 7:13 PM)
7:15 PM – 8:15 PM Bells Rehearsal
Important details…
  • Masks will be worn upon entering the building.
  • Rehearsal will be in the sanctuary.
  • Choir members will be spread out in the pews using a filter to put inside your mask. These will be given to you on the 22nd.
  • We will no longer be using the choir room to hold music. You are responsible for bringing your music/gloves to and from rehearsal.
  • Bell tables will be spread out in the aisles of the congregation section.
  • There will be one person to a table, which means we will not be able to share bells.
  • Please do not congregate in the hallways.
  • There is only 1 available restroom open in the building at this time (family bathroom closest to the Chapel).
  • The time between choir and bells will allow me to disinfect the sanctuary area. Therefore, choir members please make sure you exit the building right after the rehearsal. Bell members please do not arrive before 7:00 PM.
  • All of these guidelines and protocols in place are taken from the American Choral Directors’ Association, the Handbell Industry Council, and the Aerosol Research Study headed up by Colorado State University.
The week of each rehearsal I will send out a Google Form asking whether or not you will be at rehearsal. The first one will be sent out the week of the 19th.
As always, if you do not feel comfortable starting back with rehearsals, I completely understand. Know that you will be missed and I will keep you in the loop with everything.
I am really excited to get back into a normal(ish) routine again and look forward to seeing you all!
Feel free to reach out if you have any questions!!
Lots of Love,
Brianna
