Music Ministry

Four (!) Sopranos Concert

On January 20th, at 4:00 PM we have the opportunity to hear four of the finest singers in the San Diego Area. We are doubly blessed having them all in our Chancel Choir. Too many high notes? I think not! These women represent: professional singers; university voice teachers; big band and musical bon vivants and all-around fine musicians. Sometimes we may take their beautiful voices for granted because we see and hear them every week, but rest assured this concert will be a musical highlight of 2019! Let’s prove that a “prophet in their own land” is, in fact, appreciated by many.

Tania Batson, Lori Hable, Mei Keller, and Sally Osborne represent four wonderful women and fine musicians who freely give their talents in order to enrich our worship services. They will be performing some of their favorite vocal pieces including: opera arias; contemporary and classical sacred music; Broadway selections; and (you guessed it) Chinese traditional songs. If you have been waiting for a good reason to invite your friends and neighbors to our church, this afternoon concert will provide a great opportunity!

There is no ticket price for the concert, as we think it will be a “priceless” experience, but you are welcome to make a contribution at the end of the afternoon! Hopefully, this will be a precursor of a music series at Foothills UMC. Come and support our efforts and celebrate God’s creative hand in our daily lives. It will be a “don’t miss it” event!

Music in your life brings a new appreciation for the beauty of sound,  color, rhythm and tempo. People who share in music-making enjoy a strong sense of companionship and community. Communication with God is ​given a new dimension as well as  a deeper connection with your spirit.
Sign-Up and Participate!

Foothills has had a hand bell ministry since 1978. This choir meets at 6:30 p.m. on Mondays and rings frequently in both hours of worship and also in the community.
