Virtual Music Project

Our Music Director, Jon Novak, is working on Virtual Choir pieces for the congregation. A Virtual Choir piece is audio and/or video recordings of individuals singing that are editted together into one video. The videos will be included in the Live Streaming of Worship services like those we have been doing since March, 2020.

These projects take a ton of time to put together. We are so thankful to have talented people, like Jon, who are willing to put in the extra time to help enhance worship through these special music projects. Thank you Jon!

Project Seven – African Psalm
It’s time for another choir video for the fall season 2021-2021. I will keep producing these videos until it is safe to return to live choir rehearsals as determined by the council, synod and the CDC.
This anthem is planned for Sept 26. Since these videos are very labor intensive, please make your submissions by Sunday, September 19.

Project Six – He Is A Mighty Lord
It’s time for another choir video (probably the last for this season). Everyone is invited to participate and have fun until we (hopefully) meet in person next fall. Choir members have sung this song before. It’s a feel good tune with a good rhythm section. Pick the track for your part, S, A, T or B. You can do more than one video if you want. Read the project notes, down load and print the music, practice with the track. Have fun and GO FOR IT. Submissions were due by April 30, 2021.

Project Five – Hallelujah Chorus
This project is for anyone in the congregation and our friends at Omaha Lutheran Campus Ministry. It’s been a tough year and Jon decided we all could use a little Hallelujah in our lives. Have fun recording your chosen part. Submissions were due by March 14, 2021.

Project Four – Holy and Mighty
This was a project is for the choir only. It’s a piece we have done before, so you should be somewhat familiar with it. Submissions were due January 20, 2021.

Project Three – Lo How a Rose E’er Blooming
This project was for the choir only. Submissions were due December 27.
Supporting files have been removed since this project was completed.

Project Two – We Wish You A Merry Christmas
Our second video project is “We Wish You A Merry Christmas”. Everyone in the congregation is invited to participate as we all know the tune. Sing along with the recording on any part if you can read music or just the melody. We’ll do this just like when we go caroling. It’s about a 50 second clip and the final result will be an acappella video. Please deliver your vidoe (or audio-only) file to Jon Novak by Sunday, December 13. Feel free to submit more than one recording of different parts as the more parts help the overall chorus sound a lot.

Project One – Psalmody: Let My Prayer Rise Up
Our first video was the Psalmody (Let My Prayer Rise Up) from the Holden Evening Prayer service. This is being used for our midweek Advent services that started on December 2. This project was completed as recordings were due by Wednesday, November 25 .
