Attention, church musicians! Do you need some inspiration or new ideas for your worship service? The Palo Alto/Peninsula and San Jose Chapters of the American Guild of Organists present January Jubilee, a day-long series of workshops on Saturday, January 16, led by an exciting lineup of Bay Area musicians who will help you create a better worship experience for your congregation. The keynote speaker will be Matthew Burt, the director of music at Christ Episcopal Church in Portola Valley.
January Jubilee starts at 8:30am at Los Altos United Methodist Church with check-in and social time, then workshops begin at 9:30am. Options include creative use of MIDI, improvisation, hymn playing, publicizing via social media, building a handbell choir, and building a church choir. The day ends at 4:30pm.
