Mennonites and music

Interesting Vancouver Sun article here on the intimate relationship between Mennonites and music, and on the changes that have taken place in Mennonite churches over the past 20 years as worship bands and marketing terms like “seeker-sensitive churches” have taken precedence over traditional musical forms. While I never got past Grade 5 piano myself, my own family has been profoundly involved in music — my mother has played in worship groups and recently started selling harps; my sister is currently studying music at UVic; and one of the “illustrious singers” named here, Colin Balzer, is married to a cousin of mine (he literally burst into song as her father was taking her down the aisle) — so I recognize a lot of what this article talks about.
