This network, which has been upheld by the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians (ALCM) as a model of the kind of local organization it is trying to encourage, was initiated by Lucas Weiss, Julia Parker, Tom Gerke, and Nancy Raabe following the Augsburg Fortress summer music clinic in August, 2008. In 2010 we were affirmed by the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians as a local chapter and elected our first slate of officers. “Full” membership in Cantor Connection (including voting privileges) requires membership in ALCM. “Friends” of Cantor Connection receive news of events but are not able to vote on matters concerning the organization.
Past events include five successful citywide spring hymn festivals.
All friends of Cantor Connection are encouraged to join ALCM and to promote congregational memberships for the churches where they serve or worship. Read here about the benefits of membership in ALCM.
Cantor Connection is funded by contributions from donors and other private sources, including an annual spring fund raiser. Please contact us if you would like to inquire about supporting our activities. Peace be with you.
