Teaching and encouraging young people through music is Miss Sandy’s passion and her gift. We celebrate and give thanks as she reaches a 20 year mark in her ministry among us.
Sandy says she is the lucky one in her staff position of Music Associate. She directs the Children’s Chorus and Chapel Chimers, and is the Sanctuary Choir accompanist, blessing us all with her many talents.
While she jokes that her music journey actually began with dance lessons at the age of 4, to correct a turned in foot, it was exposure to all types of old tunes that drew her in. Piano and organ lessons followed. By the age of 13 she was playing for daily services in her church school and had already played an entire wedding. Sandy recently retired after 40 years of elementary music education NISD
To celebrate the 20th anniversary occasion, Sandy and Shelbie did what they love and gave us a concert of piano and organ duets. Check out the recording for a memory album and wonderful music. Thank you, Miss Sandy for always encouraging music here at Abiding Presence.
