Mass Choir Information

 

 March 18, 2019 

To all choir directors, singers, and pastors in the Alabama--West Florida Conference: 

My name is Wayne Sigler, and I am the director of music and worship at Frazer UMC in Montgomery. Once again this year, Frazer will be hosting the Annual Conference. For our opening worship service on the evening of June 2 we have been asked to have singers from all over the conference join the Frazer choir to make a mass chorus. It has been a real thrill at past conference services to see a great choir from all of our churches singing together. This year the opening worship service will begin at 6:00 pm. 

If you can bring a group from your church, we will need for you to do the following things: 

  • • Meet us in the Frazer sanctuary at 3:30 pm on the afternoon of June 2 for a rehearsal with choir and instruments. 
  • • We will rehearse until 4:45 and then have supper. A pizza dinner will be available in the fellowship hall for $5.00 per person. At 5:30 we will begin reassembling for the 6:00 pm service. 
  • • You will need to order these three anthems and have the parts learned before you arrive on June 2. Here are the pieces: 

Amen arranged by Jonathan Walker

  •  Please bring your choir robes to wear in the service. 
  •  Please contact me at Frazer by May 30 with the number of people you will be bringing. Please also indicate how many people will be purchasing the pizza supper in our fellowship hall. 
  • You may contact me by e-mail: wayne@frazerumc.org or call Debbie Kelley in the music office at 334-495-6353. 

I sincerely hope you and others from your church will join us for this wonderful time of praise and worship as we celebrate God’s work among us. I think we have some great pieces to sing, and it is always such fun to sing with brothers and sisters from all over the conference. 

Yours in Christ,
