North Shore American Guild of Organists
Winnetka Convenant Church
NSAGO member and hymnologist Royce Eckhardt will lead us in a festive service of hymns from the worldwide church to kick-off our 2018-2019 season. Having served as music editor for three hymnals, Royce will demonstrate how hymnals up to the mid-20th century have moved from largely Eurocentric hymns to a more global, ethnically diverse hymnody. A volunteer choir, comprised of singers from North Shore churches, will gather at 3:00 for an informal rehearsal of festival songs. A reception will follow. Please contact Royce Eckhardt at 847-251-5329 for more information.
