Yes, I know that I'm uploading a bunch, but I am doing it here for listening and giving my PS friends an idea of what I do. While I love classical, I do enjoy more contemporary stylings, which is not necessarily what this site is about. Also, I figure that by posting these here, Monica and Chris don't have to worry about accepting them for upload in the library unless they deem them appropriate.
Now, I am a church pianist, playing in many styles. I have pretty much given up the organ. These pieces are more 20th century and pop than a lot of things that I play. I do play "classical" piano a lot. I have used Chopin and Beethoven and Mozart, etc. as part of my prelude, but most of the members enjoy the arrangements that I do that are similar to these. The church is an older church (which can be noted by the fact when I came back to town at age 54, I brought down the average age of the congregation). Even at almost 61, there are only about 3 people younger than me.
I am also the choir director (hence the title "Music Director" -- it is easier than saying "organist, pianist, choir director", and gives me some official control over what happens musically).
All of that said, here are some of the types of music that I play regularly. They are not traditional "church" music, but they resonate with many people. We are in the 21st century and the church goer at my age grew up with a completely different style of music than what we think of as the "traditional" church music. Being from a more mainline denomination (United Methodist), I do have to balance "traditional" with "new". They have kept me for 6 years so I guess that I am doing OK.
Anyway, here is the stuff. Please listen, comment (several pieces I actually want to re-record because my concept has changed), and give them some praise for what they are. I can always use the strokes.Tell Me The Stories of JesusMorning has BrokenRock of My SalvationWayfaring StrangerAlmightyRise Again
