Who’s ready for Christmas?
For most of you, that is a ridiculous question. I mean, it will be at least a couple of weeks before department stores start putting out Christmas merchandise. (Pause for laughter)
But you music ministers know what I’m talking about. It’s that time of year. I am knee deep in drama scripts and choral scores. And, by some standards, I am behind. Some churches out there are already rehearsing.
Since my church is having Vacation Bible School starting a week from Monday, we will be kicking off our preparation shortly after the 18th of July. Auditions, recruiting, rehearsals, sets, costumes, schedules, props, PR, tech… lots to do.
Since we are about 25 weeks away…
1. What are some of your favorite memories from Christmas cantatas/musicals/plays/nativities of years past?
2. Music ministers: what do you have planned for Christmas so far? Are you rehearsing yet? Drama, narration, or music only?
