Pneuma is the young people’s music training program administered by Pacific Spirit United Church. Young people aged 5 to 18 form this dynamic choir and music training program which is made up of two critical parts: Wednesday services and weekly coaching.
Choir rehearsals are followed by dinner each Wednesday. The group then leads the music in the weekly Wednesday worship service called The Table. Pneuma participants also receive weekly private voice coaching with professional level singers as staff. In this way, Pneuma is a full rounded training, performance, and worship program.
Pneuma draws its roots from the fundamental one on one teaching relationship found in good music schools, and combines it with careful and sensitive listening and caring for our young people’s spiritual life. We are proud of our personal relationships with the young singers, and our musical results as well.
Pneuma is the “principal choir” for the Open House Wednesday service. If you have not had an opportunity to come and be a part of an Open House service, come for dinner first at 5:30. The service itself starts most Wednesday’s about 6:00, and is finished about 6:50. You will see the energy, the enthusiasm, and the magic of the future.
If you would like more information about Pneuma, or you know of a young person who might be interested in this program, please be in touch with Bryn Nixon (firstname.lastname@example.org), Pneuma’s director and Pacific Spirit United Church's Director of Music.
