Music Ministry
Choir Rehearsal Begins September 15th
9:00 a.m. – 10:15. a.m. Every Sunday
3855 N. Seeley Ave.
A new season is upon us at Concordia Lutheran Church, and the musicians are getting ready for some exciting musical and life updates. First and foremost, our very own Minister of Music—Yana Reznik—will be giving birth to her first child. Yana is due in early September and will be having a baby boy. We wish her and her husband Andrey countless blessings as they begin this new chapter of their lives.

During Yana’s maternity leave, we welcome pianist Saori Chiba as our interim Pianist and Music Leader. Our Vocal Music Leaders, Chase Gutierrez and I (Marisa) will be continuing on in the coming year.

JOIN THE CHOIR! We welcome new voices and musical talents to join forces with us at any time. Choir rehearsals begin on September 15th, and are every Sunday from 9 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. Contact marisabuchheit@yahoo.com if interested.

We will be continuing to explore new musical genres in the coming season, while still incorporating the Lutheran church’s favorite and familiar tunes into the services. The choir will perform classical and contemporary anthems, and we will touch on musical pieces from outside genres as well (i.e. musical theater, spiritual, jazz-based, classical and more).

This summer, Brenda Swartz and Concordia Place intern Haley Brewer assisted us in applying for a grant for the music ministry. We applied for the Nehemiah Grant from the Chicago Sunday Evening Club, requesting financial assistance for a new concert series at the church beginning this upcoming winter. More details on this soon!

Hope everyone had a lovely summer, and we look forward to making music with all of you throughout the year.
