MUSIC @ PLYMOUTH | ADVENT AND CHRISTMAS EVENTS
THE SIRENS OF BROOKLYN | DECEMBER 12 | 7:30 PM
The Sirens of Brooklyn, an all-female choral group, invites you to a Holiday Concert at Plymouth. The music featured will be both sacred and secular and all the proceeds benefit the Underground Thrift Store. Admission, at the door: $20 and $10 for seniors and students.
THE CAROL SERVICE | DECEMBER 16 | 6:00 PM
This year marks the 86th year for a neighborhood tradition: Plymouth’s candlelight service of carols and anthems. This year our prelude will be performed by you, singing Christmas carols together as we gather for the service, starting at 5:45 pm. Then sit back and enjoy a trip around the world. Our journey begins in France, and by the time we are done we will have been to Great Britain, Germany, Hungary, Poland, and the American South – musically, of course. Join us, and bring a friend!
Music has always been an essential part of our lives at Plymouth. The Church's founding minister, Henry Ward Beecher, did much to revitalize congregational singing in Protestant worship, hiring a song leader, encouraging a great choir, and editing The Plymouth Collection, the world's first modern hymnal with music and lyrics together on the same page. With great joy and enthusiasm, we continue in the tradition of our founding statement: “Service to the Church, and the joy of singing great music to the glory of God.”
Which group is for you?
Cherub Choir (ages 3 to 5)
Your child already loves music. She dances to every tune she hears, he knows all the words to “Rock and Roll Music.” Pump it up a notch and get them into the Cherub Choir. Fun songs, fun motions, and even a bit of American Sign Language - music and motion at its best!
Seraph Choir (Grades 1 through 3)
Kids who love music will only love it more once they get involved with this group. They’ll have such fun learning voice PRODUCTION, learning to read music, and singing for services on Sunday.
Junior Choir (Grades 4 through 8)
Older children - including graduates of the earlier choir program - concentrate on part-singing - the kind of singing the adult choir does. And did we mention performing in special productions of musicals with a Plymouth theme?
Tone Chime Choir (Grade 9 through adult)
Can’t read music? Can count and wield a highlighter? This is the group for you! Mark your music, pick up your chimes, and ring!!
Plymouth Choir (Grade 9 through adult)
You can carry a tune. You like singing. You are not afraid to sit in the balcony on Sunday morning in a robe. You’ll fit right in!!
