Celebrating MSM 20 Our hope for years to come

Apr 2017    

The Methodist School of Music (MSM) invites you to share in the joy of its 20 at a Thanksgiving Service themed “Our Hope for Years to Come”. It will be held on 29 April 2017 at 4 p.m., at the Telok Ayer Chinese Methodist Church TA 2 Sanctuary (61 Wishart Road).

There is much to thank God for, and to look forward to in hope. For the past two decades, God’s faithfulness has been evident through the generosity of donors who helped MSM develop programmes for various purposes.

The Ministry Scholarship programme, for example, helps less privileged children with their music education, while the biennial Worship Symposium provides a platform for worship ministry teams (both local and overseas) to renew their understanding of worship. Te Asian Composers Forum (2011-2013) gathered composers from the region to discuss stewardship and the signifcance of Asian expressions in worship, and led to the publishing of Let the Asian Church Rejoice (2015), a collection of Asian hymns for local congregations.

These have helped the MSM realise its vision of promoting excellence in music education, and enhanced the quality of worship not just through music but also through fostering continual discussion in the essentials of worship.

In 2013, the Methodist Festival Choir (MFC) was formed to foster and promote good choral music and congregational singing. Seventy In 2013, the Methodist Festival Choir (MFC) was formed to foster and promote good choral music and congregational singing. Seventy

Today, the MFC doubles as a platform for choir conductors to learn about rehearsal techniques, share resources and enjoy musicmaking with other choristers. Te MFC has also blessed the Methodist community with worship events that explore themes of the Church year presented in various liturgical and worship expressions.

Next in the pipeline is the development of the Methodist Festival Orchestra, which the MSM hopes will receive the same support and enthusiasm from the Methodist family.

The MSM Thanksgiving Service will feature the MFC, a brass quartet, and performances by MSM students and teachers. This worship event will allow one to experience the structure of worship, the function of the choir, and the leadership of the instruments played; it will also showcase the value of the congregation’s participation.

We pray that these will translate into a meaningful worship experience for all attendees and be acceptable and pleasing to God. Come join us in giving thanks to Him, and expressing our hope in Him!
