Youth Choirs from Crystal Lake



We were blessed to have the Alleluia Sound & Good Vibrations youth choirs from First Congregational Church in Crystal Lake open their 45th Annual Spring Tour in our sanctuary last week Friday.  What an impressive group of musicians to perform an outstanding concert!  Special thanks to Sheryl Long, Betsy Martin and Maren Miller for setting up their pre-concert meal and to the many host families from GCC who opened their homes to these young people after the concert.  From here, the choirs went on to Kentucky before returning back to Illinois.  Kudos and thanks to everyone involved!

GCC is hosting the Youth Choirs (vocal and handbells) from Crystal Lake Congregational Church for a concert on Friday, April 21.  We are looking for approximately 15 GCC homes to host these wonderful teenagers overnight following a 7:30 PM concert in the sanctuary.  Return time is 8:00 AM on Saturday, April 22 when they will travel to their next tour destination.  Please let Gary Wendt know if you are willing to host a couple of these young musicians.   847.724.2210 X251.

Choir Pew Cushions @ GCC

Thank you to our Music Board for coordinating the purchase of pew cushions tailored for our choir pews!  While we had a few cushions in the pews for the past many years, they were hand-me-downs from old sanctuary pews. Some choir members were half-on/half-off of a cushion, and some folks brought their own individual cushions that would find their way all around the church building.  Our Chancel Choir is but one choir occupying these pews during the week – many people will enjoy the padding!  Thank you to the Nutting Fund for making this possible.  Next on the “home improvement” list – hymnal racks!
