Remember Well the Future:
Preparing a New Generation of Church Musicians

Monday, April 19, 2021
6:30 PM
TCAGO WEBINAR

Conversations in the church about change often make assumptions about the wants or needs of younger generations, but seldom are their voices present in such dialogue. This Webinar – via Zoom – will feature a panel of young church musicians. Moderated by Lutheran Summer Music church music faculty Laura Potratz and Chad Fothergill, these church musicians in their 20s, from various denominations, will discuss some of the pressing cultural, stylistic, and vocational concerns of our time from their perspectives. Together, they will consider such questions as:

  • What do younger generations seek from the church and its liturgy?
  • What is helpful or unhelpful about assumptions made on their behalf?
  • Do words like “traditional,” “contemporary,” or "authentic” matter?
  • Are there discrepancies between the aspirations of young leaders and what they feel is expected of them, or between their training and experience?
  • How can educational organizations and institutions better equip and support new generations of leaders in changing cultural and technological contexts, especially in a post-pandemic paradigm?

Attendees will be able to submit their own questions as well.

Registration is free.
