ELCG-ESC MUSIC & SONG
Choir, Concert, Music&Song

 

This page layout is in need of organization - in the meantime please navigate the mess as best you can . . . . but nevertheless enjoy the music !


Choir practice for the adult choir is on Thursdays at 20h00 until 21h30 in the sanctuary of the church; usually led by Terry MacArthur, our music director.  We sing ecumenical songs from around the world - so a good mixture, and not always the ones that you know already. If you travel a lot, don’t worry. Come the weeks you are in Geneva.

MUSICIANS who volunteer to play within our worship and the songs from our church choirs are captured here on video.

SUNDAY 31st JULY, 2016:  Maureeen Gumbe singing "Heal the world" with Terry on Piano, and backed by George Arende.

SUNDAY 7th August, 2016:  Fulata and Samso Moyo singing "No longer slaves" with Terry on piano.

Please NOTE: the following playlist is frozen at end of November 2016 - all music and choir recordings are now added to the "Worship Videos" playlist. The playlist below will be migrated to a similar look and feel - nothing will be lost - it should be easier to navigate and be compatible with most modern browsers.
