Music Ministry Update

Music Ministry Update
Andrew Schaeffer, Director of Music Ministries

After months of planning, it is with great joy that I introduce the semi-professional instrumental ensemble that will be playing at the new 9:45 service:

Lauren Hampton, flute
Lauren is a life-long member of our church and holds a B.Mus and a M.Mus in Flute Performance. She’s frequently contributed to our services either by playing flute or substituting in the handbell choir.

Eleanor Little, viola
Eleanor is Episcopalian by background and has been studying viola for 6 years. This fall, she’ll matriculate at Oklahoma Christian University.

Preston Drain, horn
Preston has been a choral scholar at FUMC for nearly 4 years and is wrapping up a degree at UCO. He is married to Michaela, who also sings in our adult choir.

Eli Bigler, ‘cello
Eli is active in the Oklahoma Youth Orchestra and was confirmed here at FUMC back in 2014.

Even though this group will be playing exclusively at the new 9:45 service when it starts on September 10, if you come to worship this Sunday at either the 8:30 or 11:00 services, you’ll get a chance to hear this great new ensemble for the first time! I hope you’ll join us as we explore this fresh expression of worship!
