The Church Pianist: Offertory Idea

As church pianists, we could use some inexpensive, creative
ideas for offertories, right?

Did you know you can use a piano arrangement written for
a vocalist to accompany say…a violin or flute solo?

Or…use a piano accompaniment written for one of these instru-
ments to accompany a vocalist.

Not too long ago…I shared a free vocal arrangement of
“Haven of Rest”. One of my church pianist readers used it
to accompany her sister, who plays violin.

It turned out so nice that I decided to share this offertory
idea with you… with their video. Links to music included below the video.

    Well done, girls! That was lovely. I just tried recording the solo part on my clavinova using a ‘string ensemble’ type of sound….then switched to a piano to play along with it–or attempt to! I’ll need to work at it a bit, but it’s very pretty. If anyone reading this has a digital piano that will record your playing, give it a try…great fun! 🙂 Thanks so much for providing the written arrangement, Jenifer!
