We are excited to introduce Miss Holly Smith as our new Choir Director!
You may remember seeing her play the flute here as a guest musician in the past. On Wednesday evening she was able to meet with various members of the choir and bell choir. You will be seeing more of her around First Church in the coming weeks as she gets to know everyone.
She shared a few words of introduction with us:
“Originally from Upstate New York, I moved to Ohio in 2012 to attend Grad School. This is my seventh year of teaching Elementary School Music at New Bremen Local Schools. I earned my Bachelor’s Degree in Music Education from Hartwick College (NY) where I specialized in Instrumental Conducting and Flute Performance; completed my Master of Music Degree in Music Education from Bowling Green State University (OH) where I specialized in Elementary General Music; and received an Endorsement in Gifted and Talented Education from Muskingum University (OH). I accepted Christ as my Savior when I was 7 years old and am abundantly blessed to have been sharing the love of Christ with others through music since 1999.” Cheers, Holly.
