Church choir piano accompaniment
synopsis of work
I plan to use my skills and knowledge in music and playing piano to help others learn & perform music through the finest quality. I have to be dependable, organized, positive, and prepared. I hope to encourage others with music and be a role model to those around me.
Sample work below:
1. Rachmaninoff Suite No. 2, "Romance" two piano duet with sister
2. Church choir accompaniment, sunday service, song in Romanian "Fiti Tari" (Be Strong)
The main choir community has performed at Philadelphia church in Portland at every Sunday service, along with other events, since the church opened about 30 years ago. The choir is comprised of about 100 people - men and women and youth of all ages, consisting of the original soprano, alto, tenor, and bass voices. Everyone shares the same interest of making music and spending time together in this process. The role of each member is to learn music, train, and rehearse for the task of performing for the Sunday services and also other events that come up during the year.
