The Music Committee has been working diligently and enthusiastically to provide a varied and meaningful music program for our church. These are the musical events planned thus far for this church year:
1). EACH 4TH SUNDAY OF THE MONTH, a different musician/s will be performing during the church service. So far we have
David Hanner playing classical music on the piano on Jan. 26th. On Feb. 23rd, Alan Whitney and Tom Pritchard will be playing.
2). On SATURDAY, FEB. 15, we are going to have another WALDEN POND COFFEE HOUSE EVENING. Details will be forthcoming.
3). A “SPRING EQUINOX CONCERT” will be present on SATURDAY, MARCH 22nd in the evening! Our new choir will be singing several pieces, and musicians from UB and other sources will perform. David Hanner will be in charge of this wonderful event. It will be a church fundraiser, as usual.
4). On FRIDAY, MAY 30th, two special activities will occur. First, there will be a special dinner! Then a wonderful MUSICAL

6). To start out our new year in September (on the 14th), JIM SCOTT will be coming to Amherst and conducting our entire church service. He has requested that he be able to work with the choir!
As we are planning and looking forward to such wonderful events, we are also working on developing a job description for the search for candidates for the position of Music Director for our church. A committee has been organized to accomplish this important task.
With all that is being developed for our church music program, you should know that this is a very special music committee! It is truly a pleasure to work with them. They are: Karen Kuhn, Cliff Mahler, Hinni Martens, Kathy Moriarty, Scott and Lisa Mulder, Joe Rautenstrauch, Marlana Rice, Rev. Art Severance and Wendy Scott (my new co-chair).
We will keep you posted as more events are planned; meanwhile we hope you enjoy the music! ~Grace Little
