When the bishop called me to be the ward choir director in September I nearly fell off my chair in fits of laughter. If there was ever a person unqualified for a job it was me for this one. My musical abilities stop shortly after being able to read music. I have put in my time as a primary chorister but that was all fun and games, nothing technical. My head spun in circles for about 5 days as I tried to wrap my head around the idea that I was being asked to help with the Christmas program. Honestly, I was perfectly FINE with writing the program, I wasn’t too fine with leading a choir. My gross lack of experience led to conclude that the program needed to be very basic with MUCH participation from the congregation. Here is what I came up with; it turned out well, the length was perfect and everyone was involved.
Most of the information in this program came from:
One person narrated the whole program and we invited the Primary kids to the front BEFORE the program began, they returned to their seats after their song was over.
