Voluntary Improvisation on St. Flavian
Oftentimes people take on a spiritual discipline in Lent, rather than “giving something up.” Your Director of Music is embarking on a musical/spiritual discipline to further the art of improvisation – the act of making music spontaneously – through offering an improvised voluntary each week during the season. While the actual music heard is created on the spot, much preparation and study precedes it, including working through method books, listening to others’ improvisations, and working with a coach to create a growing “tool box” of musical devices. But the bigger challenge is letting go and allowing the Spirit to take control, much like life. Let’s embark on the journey together!
