The Importance of Congregational Singing
Last September, Getty Music launched a multi-year focus on congregational singing with their first conference - SING! 2017. Through an impressive line-up of plenary and breakout speakers they began to tackle what they define as their five urgent goals:
Their work continued on an even larger scale this year as the conference more than doubled in attendance and moved from Brentwood Baptist Church to Nashville's Music City Center. After making the case for the necessity of congregational singing in 2017, their logical focus for year 2 two was the Psalms.
This year our focus is on the Psalms. As we look to this songbook of the Bible as our singing blueprint it unleashes boundless creativity, it reaches to the breadth of human experience, it gives us a breath taking vision of the vastness of God and His song of salvation to us.
