Summer Choir Anthems

Although the weather rarely changes here in San Diego, summertime has a special feel, marked by longer days, bbqs, holidays and vacations. Even if we aren't spending our days at the beach or by the pool, we can't be too troubled by weekly rehearsals and robes, so we have Summer Choir.

Summer choir is an informal collection of singers drawn primarily from the Sanctuary Choir which regularly provides musical leadership at the 9:30 service. We meet promptly at 9 am in the choir room (below the Sanctuary) to warm-up and have a brief rehearsal on a fun or familiar anthem that is suited to the theme in worship that day. This group is open to anyone who would like to give it a try, no need to read music or make a reservation, just show up at 9 am on Sunday morning.

Below you will find a list of anthems and dates, and when available I have included a YouTube video of the selection. If you have any questions, please don't hesitate to contact music director, Juan Acosta jacosta_fumccv@yahoo.com or 619-656-2525

 (not the greatest recording, but neat because it shows our Methodist brothers and sisters at the worship arts camp at Lake Junaluska)

(this is a high quality video and performance, plus... bowties)

Sunday, August 10th - TBA

Sunday, August 17th - We Will Be Your People                               Don Phillips 

(this is a publisher sample recording which always has a slightly cheesy sound, don't let it scare you)

Sanctuary Choir will resume rehearsals on Thursday, August 21st as we prepare for our annual POPS Concert and Christmas Concert in addition to singing in worship each Sunday.
