Kalos PRODUCTION Team
Engage with the Beauty of Jesus
Nothing unifies us like music. Saying the same thing - lyric - at the same time - rhythm - in the same way - melody - is powerful.
Kalos Church Production Team is just a group of friends who love Jesus, love making music, love being in community together and want to get better at it! We’d love to have you join us!
A Week in the Life of Production Team
Setlist is posted to Planning Center (see below for further instructions on how to use planning center).
Tuesday - Thursday
On average, our team members will practice between 1-2 hrs in preparation for Thursday rehearsal.
Thursday from 6:30-8:30 pm at 2053 152nd Ave NE, Redmond, WA 98052
At rehearsal we work together to:
- be friends
- have fun,
-make sure that our music is as excellent as we can muster.
- While we crave creativity, as a general rule of thumb, we typically stick with playing songs as they are on the provided mp3s.
- On planning center you will see a designated “Worship Leader” who will run the rehearsal, but we expect empathetic criticism from every member of our team as we all strive for the best we can offer.
- We believe everyone on our team has the capacity to bring valuable musical insight and contribution.
