A Music Choir Retreat with Mark Hayes
January 24-26, 2020

The Music Ministry Team and the Choir Committee of Keawalaʻi Congregational Church will be hosting a weekend music choir retreat with Mark Hayes, January 24-26, 2020. Mark is an internationally known composer and arranger of contemporary Christian and sacred music. His music is found in the music libraries of churches and universities around the world. Mark is known for his vocal and instrumental writing and is widely acclaimed for his unique choral settings which draw from such diverse styles such as gospel, jazz, pop, folk and classical music.

The retreat is designed to empower church musicians by providing fresh insights into improvisation, accompanying and congregational hymn playing. Participants will be taught a select number of compositions of church songs for the solo voice and for full choirs for a variety of worship settings. The intent is for participants to be able to share what is learned with their congregations and with the wider church body.

The retreat will be limited to 120 participants including church musi-cians, song leaders, choir directors, instrumentalists and anyone who enjoys singing. There is a $20 registration fee per person. The fee will cover all a choir music packet, meals and other resources. For more information, contact the church at: (808) 879-5557 or at: www.keawalai.org.
