ECR’s music program has begun to expand in new directions this past year, and we look forward to embarking upon new projects!
We are eager to grow our adult choir, as there have been several transitions recently due to longtime members’ health challenges or moves.
Our musical outreach ministry via the concert series (monthly on second Sundays) draws many visitors from surrounding neighborhoods, and we’re building a reputation as a place to experience great music by top-quality artists. As we attract more first-time visitors to our concert series, it would be wonderful for them to meet more of ECR’s parishioners at those events and also experience our community! Mary Morrison graciously provides refreshments after many concerts, and we’d like to grow a Guild of greeters and refreshments hosts to assist in this ministry. Assistance in publicizing upcoming concerts would also be much appreciated.
Austin Girls’ Choir continues in residence at ECR, rehearsing twice a week in our facilities, running June camps that are promoted citywide, and presenting the occasional concert in the Nave. We also host a few concerts each year by the Balcones Community Orchestra.
Heartfelt thanks to my wonderful church family for your terrific support of the music program this past year, and especially for the loving care shown me as I got through unexpected surgery and recovery this fall. You are a blessing to me each and every day!
