Ukuleles, Sophia & Resurrection Band

UKULELE

Have you always wanted to learn how to play? Now is your time!

Our new Ukulele group is learning together – working on new chords – enjoying singing new and old songs and just strumming along.

A fun evening. We try to improve our techniques and songs each month.  We manage to add new songs to our repetoir including seasonal songs at Christmas!  There are generally a couple of extra ukuleles just waiting for someone to come and try their hand at picking up a new instrument…so come along.IMG_2769

We gather on the first and third Wednesdays of the month at 6 p.m. Just follow the sound of strumming!  Members include:  Ken, Lolly, Hank, Ruth, Judie, Marie, Katherine, Joyce, Svinda, Elaine, John, Samantha, and anyone else who wants to come out on a Wednesday.  We are all still learning!

SOPHIA

Sophia is a group of three women – Denise, Jill and Joyce – who enjoy singing and harmonizing.  They provide a Sunday anthem periodically throughout the year and work to carry the theme of the service into their music.  The guitar accompaniment keeps the music simple yet filling.   Occasionally we have included drums and a little percussion.   No formal training is involved and they sing from their heart and souls and simply want to pass along the joy of singing.  Music can speak to us in many ways and the opportunity to share with others can be very fulfilling.

RESURRECTION BAND

Trinity’s Resurrection Band plays occasionally throughout the year.  There is no rhyme or reason to when we play or who is in the band.  Members change according to their availability and the occasion.  We provided music leadership for the Christmas Eve 7 p.m. Family Service (and hope to do so again this year).  We shared a special song at the Social Action Worship service –  Make this World a Better Place.  A fabulous song of rhythm, acoustics, drums, guitars, bass, vocals, ukuleles, trumpet, saxophone and lots of fun!  The congregation was on their feet, swaying and clapping along, and singing enthusiastically with the band.  The spirit was soaring that morning.

The band gathers a few weeks ahead of the event or worship for which we will provide music leadership.  I think the small time of commitment makes this manageable for people with busy lives.  Members have included:  Denise, Jill, Svinda, Lolly, Ken, Chris, Marilyn, Ruth, Joyce, Don, Hank, Dave, Judie, Marie, Katherine, Samantha, Emily, Andrea, Jeff, Heather, Roger,  Wyatt, John, Phillip and others as needed.
