Kyle Haugen: The Cantor’s Work in Pandemic Times
What has it been like to start a position in March 2019 and have COVID hit in March 2020? By this April, Kyle Haugen, full-time cantor at Queen Anne Lutheran Church, Seattle, will have spent his first year there in person, nurturing a vibrant community, and the second year under the restrictions of remote worship. Kyle shares observations and insights on a journey where half of his tenure has been without in person community. He will also demonstrate the splendid Robert Wech organ, installed in 2010 (with its tenth anniversary occurring during the pandemic). We invite you to join us for a hopeful perspective as we look towards a return to in person music ministry with our congregations.
