"new genaration"
« on: May 21, 2006, 08:00:29 AM »
I've been over the choir for at my church for 22yrs now. And as time goes by we are gitting younger and younger choir members. How does one keep up with the "new genaration" of music and still not lose that traditional style.  ?/?

You are in the unique position to teach the "new generation" the traditional songs of the church while, at the same time, providing for them a positive musical expression through the music of this generation. I praise God for you.


Just mix it up and I'm sure your young choir members will appreciate it.  :D

I agree.  I just might add a lil sumthin sumthin to the music or words and boy do the love it.  The love it so much til they are not looking at the fact that it might be a traditional song.

I would also suggest " flipin the script" ( As we call it0 On some of the traditional songs. Lets the youth come up with a song and teach it to the entire choir. Make them a part of the experience. You can't loose that way.

IMO, I think you should try to work with and mentor the younger generation.  First and foremost, you should make sure that your younger members have a personal relationship with Jesus Christ...if they're just in the choir for show or because they enjoy singing, it's not going to work.

After that, teach them traditional songs as well as newer contemporary music.  As a young musician (22) I tend to favor contemporary style since it's what I grew up listening to but I still have love and respect for those old hymnals and traditional praise & worship songs of yesteryear....without them, today's music and artists wouldn't exist.

You can't get to where you're going if you don't understand where you've been.  Prayer, patience, practice, and perserverience will help to bridge the gap for you, I'm sure of it. ;)


God Bless,
