Cherub Choir - Lakeview United Church
3200 McCallum Avenue, Regina, Saskatchewan, Canada, S4S 0R8 (306) 586-7844
To introduce some songs, we will find an appropriate story. The
Arch Book series is excellent but there are also many other resources.
To reinforce the message of the song or the Bible story we will ask
questions to ensure the children understand what they are singing about.
As time permits, we occasionally have a musician (senior student or
professional) bring his/her instrument so the children can see and hear
it close at hand. Examples are trumpet, violin, cello, tuba, clarinet,
flute, trombone, viola, oboe, percussion. Usually the guest will
explain how the instrument makes sound, how it is played and will then
play a few excerpts which may be familiar or funny or show the particular
quality of the instrument's sound.
Usually before Christmas and again in late spring, we take the cherubs
to one or more of the following where we have parishioners who can't come
to church any more. The choir presents a little concert of the pieces
learned in that semester as well as a number of perennial favourites that
we keep in practice. This is much appreciated by the seniors, the
children and their parents.
