Join us for our second gathering of musicians, clergy and lay leaders at The Barbara C.

Learn practical skills and diverse repertoire, and explore how paperless music can enrich and expand your congregation's repertoire of sung prayer and praise. And enjoy beautiful fall foliage, hearty meals, an evening sing around the campfire, and hike the wooded shores of Otter Lake.

Saturday, November 11, 2017 at 09:30 AMThe Episcopal Church of the Advocate in Chapel Hill, NC
Music That Makes Community is excited to make our first visit to Chapel Hill, North Carolina, sharing paperless music and leadership practices! Join presenters Marilyn Haskel and Paul Vasile for a one-day paperless music workshop at The Episcopal Church of the Advocate on Saturday, November 11 from 9:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Explore the basics of paperless music, learn new songs to enrich your community's worship life, and reflect on strategies for cultivating participatory singing and liturgy.
We'll gather in the historic, carpenter gothic Episcopal church building that was moved, lovingly restored, and repurposed by the congregation in 2012. The acoustics inside the nave have been described as being “like in the inside of a guitar,” perfect for unplugged instruments and a cappella singing.
MMC will also host a free Community SING at the church on Friday, November 10 at 7 p.m. Singers of all ages and abilities are invited to learn paperless songs from diverse spiritual traditions, languages and cultures, led by a dynamic team of Music That Makes Community presenters.
Registration Fee: $25
Refreshments, a light lunch, and workshop materials are included.
Discounts are available for students, seminarians and seniors. Contact Paul Vasile in the MMC office to learn more.
