Greetings to all who will attend the upcoming Algoma Diocesan Synod,
I am helping to coordinate the music that will be offered in our sessions together at Synod in May, and am keen to know if there are any of you attending who would be willing to play instruments as needed. I would not expect you to play for every piece we offer, but do invite your assistance. If you are interested in helping in this musical way, please let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org
(before Easter if at all possible):
a) your instrument
b) a rough description of your playing skills
(eg ?3 years: high school band?; or ?15 years: professional?; or ?beginner but I really want to help??.)
c) can you provide your own instrument and any equipment?
(eg music stand, amp and patch cords, etc)?
d) Do you read music? How well can you sight read?
e) Can you improvise (with or without a chord chart/lead sheet)
NB: It would be helpful if you put 'SYNOD MUSIC" in the Subject line!
Thanks for getting back to me as soon as you can.
Best wishes for Holy Week and Happy Easter.
David Buley, Chair, Worship Committee
