We’ve all experienced attrition in our music programs. Our choirs have dwindled, gotten older, gotten unbalanced. The handbell choir goes into a panic when one person gets sick. Retirees move away to the Promised Land. Children are off playing sports. Musical instruments go unused. How have you adapted? What creative remedies have you cooked up? Let’s share our ideas, our successes, our flops in an open forum. There will be lots to discuss!
This is a free, one-hour conversation on ZOOM. All are welcome. 12 noon ET / 9 am PT. Please register for the event to receive the Zoom link.
The recording of this event and all of our Saturday Sharing conversations can be found on our YouTube channel.
There is no denying that we work in a noisy environment. A full organ, a resounding chorus, blaring trumpets, opera-trained soloists -- all are inspiring but they do present a workplace hazard when rehearsing and performing in close proximity. How can we protect our hearing from damage in these situations? What are the signs of hearing loss? When should our hearing be tested? Why are hearing aids important? How can hearing aids help in various acoustical settings? How can we help our choir members with hearing aids? This is important information for both young and old.
Join Host Greg Chestnut and Audiologist Briana Rico as they discuss all the ways to optimize good hearing health. There will be time for questions.
Briana Ricco, AuD, CCC-A, has a Doctor of Audiology degree from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, Amherst MA (May 2020) and a Bachelor of Science in Communication Sciences and Disorders from Worcester State University, Worcester, MA. She is on the staff of Solinsky Hearing Center of Central Connecticut.
Join us in person for workshops, worship services, concerts and programs, meaningful worship services and networking with your colleagues. We will be hosted by the First Congregational Church of Greenwich, Connecticut. From Wednesday evening through the Saturday morning closing worship service, we provide a plethora of activities that will enhance your music skills and give you resources and ideas for new ways of expressing God's Spirit in these challenging times.
