Join Center Director Brian Hehn for a presentation on why the “traditional/contemporary” divide just doesn’t make sense. We’ll spend the first half of the session talking about how we go into using this pesky dichotomy, and then we’ll explore ways of expanding beyond it. You’ll come away with new vocabulary for talking about congregational song as well as some great new songs to try out with your congregation.
