We like music. We like it so much we have a band and a choir.
The Youth Band is an amazing opportunity to refine your music skills, learn a bunch of songs, and learn how to lead worship. Not only does the Youth Band lead music during youth group several times a month throughout the year, they also perform in worship a number of times. The Youth Band is led by multi-instrumentalist, Kevin Dolan, who is able to write parts far beyond just guitars, drums, and bass. If you play the piano, violin, cello, trombone, Moog synthesizer, or anything else there is a spot in the Youth Band for you! If you are interested, contact Zach or Kevin!
The Village Voices is the youth choir at Village. The youth choir takes music and performance seriously, but not at the cost of building community and having a lot of fun. In addition to a regular rehearsals and performances both in traditional and alternative worship services, the choir has two lock-ins each year (one in August and one in January) as well as an annual choir tour in June. In the past the choir tour has traveled to Wichita, Oklahoma City, Memphis, St. Louis, Omaha, and more! The choir is directed by Matthew C. Shepard, an awesome leader with master’s degrees in both Conducting and Vocal Performance. If you are interested in joining the choir, or just want to hear more about it, don’t hesitate to contact Zach or Matthew!
Here’s a video of the choir performing one of their songs on their most recent choir tour to Wichita.
