We are thrilled to welcome Benjamin Hanson as our new Music Director! (Read his bio on our Ministers & Staff Page.) Benjamin is excited to get to know the congregation and has organized several opportunities to meet, greet and sing with you! Check them out below
Foothills Global Peace & Justice team and our Music Ministries are excited to invite the community to an evening exploring the power of music and the call of peace. In our first hour, we will watch the powerful documentary, The Singing Revolution and learn about the ways the people of Estonia used music and singing to free themselves from decades of Soviet occupation.
In the second hour, we’ll hear from our new Music Director Benjamin Hanson, who was in Estonia this spring as a part of their ongoing national choral gathering, a time where tens of thousands of people come together to sing! We will end our time practicing the message of the film – by learning and singing together traditional Estonian songs. This will be a powerful, special event – we hope you can join us, and please invite your friends!
Join Benjamin on Saturday, August 27, for a start-of-year choir retreat! This event is open to anyone interested in learning more about the Foothills Choir, whether you’re a longtime member or a newcomer. If you’ve ever wondered what choir is all about, this is your chance to find out!
Attendees will receive vocal instruction, learn musical skills, get to know other choir members, and start learning music for upcoming services. No prior musical experience necessary, just come ready to sing!
