We are very blessed to have RICK EARLEY who answered the call for our Minister of Music in July of 2021 during the pandemic. He works very hard with applying his many talents to meet the challenges with our changing in-person and online music ministry schedule.
Rick’s resume’ reflects many years of teaching and directing choirs, bands, and students. He has served as a keyboardist in the St. Louis area and in California. Rick is currently a 5th grade teacher in Ferguson. He possesses a great love of Jazz and Gospel, and is eager to share his talents and the praise of God through music.
The All Saints and Ascension Choir has grown in the past few years, but is looking to increase its membership even more. Adding additional voices to the ensemble will give us the flexibility to plan more frequent special music and increase our involvement as we move into the future together. It is not necessary to have a wonderful voice.
Joy and enthusiasm are the only requirements! If you love to sing, we would love to have you regardless of your musical background. If you are interested or have any questions, please contact the parish office.
Andrea Hunter’s last day as Music Director was June 3, 2018 whereby we celebrated her service to our parish. The following thank you card was received from Andrea and her family. Please note the drawing of exchanging “The Peace” from 4 year old Bree (her favorite part of the service). She drew herself on the far right and specifically wants everyone to know that the person next to her is Walter Fox.
Whatever Happened to Hal McGhee?
Many of you from All Saints will also remember our former choir director, Hal McGhee. In July 2018, Hal emailed the parish just to say hi, and express his fond memories of our annual picnic. He is currently living in Libertyville, IL and actively attends St. Lawrence Episcopal Church.
