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.

Project Four – Holy and Mighty
This project is for the choir only. It’s a piece we have done before, so you should be somewhat familiar with it. Because there are some part splits, consider creating two recordings. Thanks for sharing your musical gifts.
Submissions are due to Jon Novak by 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.

Here is the information you need to participate in this Virtual Choir project. Review the instruction sheet, print the sheet music for your use, and listen to the Learning/Timing Audio track for your part.
