Music, Admin & Wentz Hall...

We got the date...
It's too soon... HA!

As of May 2nd The Down Town campus of Community Christian Church will be holding our services in the performing arts center at North Central College known as Wentz Hall.
I'm still the acting arts director there and have not been asked to leave so since a full time job has not come through yet....here I am.
I've got a good set of musicians to work with and things have greatly improved since some of my previous posts.
Wentz Hall is going to expose all shortcomings of anyone who isn't up to the task of raising the bar of their musicianship. With that some tough decisions are going to be made. I'm not thrilled with the position I am in but I can do it.
New auditions will be held in the next few months.
I had a 15 piece Orchestra this past Sunday playing with one our better rhythm sections.
It was a great morning.
Our church move qualifies us for some new gear so new inner ears are coming along with a wide screen format projection system is going to make for an amazing experience for the future attenders.

The Bar is still, well the bar...
Pianos are slowly increasing...
The next few months will be an interesting but fun ride!

Whoa, Mr. White - that looks like a cool space for a church service. And yes, it would be like shining a spotlight on a car's paint job to see if there are any defects.

I hope the work of selecting/pruning goes well, and that you (collectively) are able to do well professionally, and to the glory of God.

Wise words Steve...
We are being very professional and cautious.

What are "inner ears"?

Bands used to have monitors of the floor in front of them facing back so they can hear themselves. Technology has moved to the point of each musician has a little personal monitor with ear pieces. A much cleaner sound going out to the audience.
