One Accord group adding venues, styles
One Accord, a BBC music team featuring a blend of traditional and contemporary styles of worship, has expanded its venues and musical offerings.
The seven-member group includes five students and led by music faculty members Dr. David Harris and David McGrew. Together, they bring over 30 years of musical experience and expertise.
"We enjoy staying connected to the rich tradition of historic hymnody as well as the best of what is being written today," said David McGrew, the team coordinator.
Offering church worship and music seminars, the team is increasing its travels both locally and regionally. Recently, the team visited churches in Tunkhannock and Wellsboro, PA, as well as Mount Laurel, NJ. Their upcoming schedule includes a couples' banquet in Reading, PA.
The team's versatility allows the group to minister in a range of places. In addition to their repertoire of sacred music, they also enjoy sharing familiar classical romantic pieces in a Broadway and jazz context.
