Notes from Nola –

Why Go to a Moravian Music Weekend? You know, there are almost 3,000 names/addresses on the Moravian Music Foundation’s mailing list. And, for Music on the Mountain, since 2011 we’ve had an average attendance of about 60 people. That means that even if we’d had a completely different group of attendees each year, only about 480 people would have yet attended this wonderful weekend of music-making! And you know, we don’t have a completely different group of participants each year; in fact, many come year after year, and I think there are a handful who haven’t missed a single one! If you’ve been before, we hope you’ll come back again March 13 – 15; if you haven’t been, then now’s the time to make your plans to come for the first time! Who comes? Band players … choir singers … and listeners. No one need audition; no one will be singled out or embarrassed; everyone goes away encouraged, built up in faith and in musical experience, and in joy. And of course, there’ll be plenty of opportunities for conversation amongst the participants and time to talk to the Music Foundation staff about all those things you’ve been meaning to ask us … Band players have a chance to play chorales and other music with a full band, under a different director each year, with a different experience than can happen in your church band. You’ll learn new techniques (and new jokes), and strengthen friendships. Pick up your horn, your chorale books, and your folding music stand and come along! Choral singers have a chance to sing through a group of anthems and learn a few to sing in worship on the Sunday morning, also with a different director each year. You’ll learn music that’s new to you, gain insights into choral singing from your director, and sing with different people than you sit beside week after week. And if you don’t in a choir regularly, that’s just fine too! Listeners are those folks who just love to be on the mountain, but don’t want to participate in the band or choir. Some have spouses or roommates who are participating; some just come to be present and hear all the music making. Let’s fill Higgins Lodge with music! See you on the mountain!
