Worship Choir Vs. Traditional
Date: February 10, 2013
Hi All: Reaching out there to see what others might advise....
I have a traditional choral music training (MM degree) and have worked at the high school level and the college level and I currently finding myself working with the choir at the church that I am attending. The music director is a former Christian rock musician and the church focuses solely on contemporary repetoire. I am finding myself like a "fish out of water" since I do enjoy that style of music I don't know of many resources to find music, nor have I had the training on that style. I found some things on Word music's website but all the music needs to be approved by the director and he has very specific ideas of what he wants... I also have a very inexperienced (although enthusiastic!) choir that I am dealing with that only has about 3 readers and is about 30 strong. So wondering if anyone know of where I can get resources for this kind of situation and especially resources in training mostly middle aged, non pop singers to try and sing that style? Thanks!
