To make a really long story short, since July of 2012, I’ve been the Director of Choirs and Music Theory teacher at Greater Atlanta Christian School in Norcross, GA. I’ve also had the privilege of leading worship at some wonderful churches; Northlake and most recently for the last year+, at Campus.
Last week, I had the privilege of conducting a “first” in our school’s musical history. For the first (and hopefully not the last) time ever, we collaborated to present a major choral-orchestral work. We, along with our orchestra directed by Nelson Galarraga, several guest artists & some of our private lesson string faculty, and some friends from Chicago, presented Vivaldi’s “Gloria.” (Link to video forthcoming here) This was a pivotal moment for our school and for our choral department and I’m so proud of the kids’ hard work that went into this special performance.
I hope to return to blogging more regularly in the very near future…but suffice it to say that my hymnological research continues at a fast pace…the family is well…I’m still arranging music for lots of folks and God is faithful…even when we are not.
