Highlights

Reading Session 1: New Congregational Song
Dr Joel Navarro

This session offers an inspiring peek into new congregational songs, thoughtfully composed for the nuanced worshipper who desires a deeper understanding of the Christian experience which is intimately connected to God and community.

Case Studies: Pastoral Care in the Music Ministry
Dr Samuel Cheung

The session creates a forum to share ways of providing emotional and spiritual support to the choristers, worship team & instrumentalists, as they perform their calling as music ministers to a great number of souls.            

Reading Session 3: New Anthems for Special Services
Mr Eudenice Palaruan

This activity explores new and relevant songs for non-standard services such as funeral wakes, music outreaches to hospitals and home for the aged, mothers’ & fathers’ day, choir rededication, healing services, and other church-related occasions.

WORKSHOPS
Group A: Listening as a Rehearsal Technique
Mr Eudenice Palaruan

The workshop covers practical choir rehearsal techniques that can be applied to choristers who learn their music not through reading but through aural methods.

Group B: Developing a Singing Congregation
Dr Myrleene Yap

This workshop addresses the issue on how to encourage the congregation to participate in singing during worship services.

Talk: Spiritual Leadership in Music Rehearsal
Dr Beverly Shangkuan-Cheng

This talk will address ways in organizing a spiritually-driven rehearsal by choir conductors who assume their Levitical mandate as music pastors even without formal theological training.        

Open Rehearsal for Hymn Festival
Dr Joel Navarro

Have the chance to observe how choral luminaries manage and run a hymn festival that will be performed that night.
