Today’s Music for Today’s Church

Saturday, 2 March, 10:00 am4:30 pm AEDT

Hymns, songs, hymnbooks, screens, online music – much has happened in the world of church music over the past 20 to 30 years. So how do we navigate through the possibilities and find the best for our worshipping communities?

This day program is designed for those who sing, play, plan or lead music within the church to help you do just that.

We will look at new repertoire, where to find it, how to introduce it, and how to obtain it legally. We’ll also go over how you can evaluate new repertoire, share it with colleagues, and think about your worship music for Lent and Easter.

The seminar will include the launch at 2pm of Songs of Grace, a supplement to Together in Song, by D’Arcy Wood, as part of a short act of worship in the Chapel of Trinity College.

Saturday 2 March 2019 | 10AM–4.30PM
Trinity College, Old Warden’s Lodge, 100 Royal Parade, Parkville
$40 adult | $30 concession

The session will be led by:

Fay Magee, a musician, educator, and ongoing theological student who has been teaching, leading and accompanying congregational singing from a young age. Fay has degrees in music and education, a L Mus A for piano, and a master’s degree in theology, in which she researched contemporary congregational song. As well as working as a music teacher with students at all year levels, Fay has worked extensively with community singing groups and is passionate about assisting everyone to find their voice.

Philip Nicholls, who has been the Director of Music at St Paul’s Cathedral since 2013. Philip is General Editor and Anglican Director of the Australian Hymn Book Company. Philip’s musicological studies in liturgical music at the University of Melbourne culminated in a dissertation on the music of the Chapel of Trinity College between 1917 and 1957, and he holds graduate degrees in theology from the University of Divinity.
