Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

This Sunday the Parish Committee will be meeting and one of the items on the adgenda will be whether of not to extend our Chaplain’s term of
Service at St. Andrew’s beyond the end of this year when his current
licence with us expires. Chaplain Bruce has been excused from attending the meeting and will be leaving immediatley after the service in order to catch an afternoon flight to attend Diocesan meetings . This will
allow the opportunity for everyone to speak freely and voice their
opinions in this matter during the coffee following the service. Please
feel free to talk to me or any committee member  and your feed back will be taken into consideration when the  Committee meets that day. If you cannot be at church on Sunday you may email me, gunilla@ramell.com with
your thoughts.

Thank you for your consideration to this matter.

Sincerley Yours, Gunilla Ramell, Warden

Dear Family and Friends of St. Andrews,
As I write this we are half way through the summer and things are starting up for the fall. It is promising to be an active time offering opportunities for worship and fellowship. I hope that you will take note of what is happening and come and join your brothers and sisters.
The Choir has remained active during the summer under the direction of our Music Director Patrick Holming and assistant choir director Gillian Thylander. After disbanding in June members still gathered at ten on Sundays to go over the hymns and occasionally sing during communion. On Friday the 2nd of August they will again gather for regular rehearsals on Fridays at five and Sundays at ten to prepare music for Sunday Worship. If you would care to join them please show up you would be most welcome. Also Patrick is available for music coaching and questions if you would like to enhance your skills. Please see him.
We also would like to know who in the congregation plays a musical instrument? At the Family Services on the beginning of the month it has been customary in the past to enhance our services with special music. This Sunday at the Family Service we will have a Solo by one of the African members as well as a piano Solo during communion. Please let either me of the Music Director know if you are interested. In conversation it was discussed about forming a Recorder Ensemble. If anyone plays this instrument please let us know.
The music schedule for the fall is as follows and includes two piano recitals by our music director in August. These piano concerts will benifit the Music Program so please support Patrick in this venture and tell your friends. Also included below is his brief biography for those of you who don´t know him. His mother Fay sings in the Choir.

List of forthcoming concerts

17. 08 – 15.00 Piano Matinee: Patrick Holming

18. 08 – 15.00 Piano Matinee: Patrick Holming

7. 09 — 12.15 Lunchtime concert Ryan O’Reiley Band

7. 09 – 18.00 Ryan O’Reiley concert

14.09 – 16 or 18.00 Richie Ros singer and band

28.09 – 16.00 English Chamber choir (Lars Näsström)

Thank you to Gillian for providing this update.

This Sunday there will be a service at 9:30 and Family Service at eleven. See you there!

David Bruce, Chaplain

Patrick George Sonny Holming was born in Harwich/England as the first of three children. The father Hans Holming is from Finland, Mother Fay (nee Scull) from England. They settled in Sweden and came soon to Gothenburg where Patrick grew up.

When Patrick was 4 years old, his parents bought a fine old piano for 500 Swedish crowns at an auction. Patrick immediately started to play on it… Soon after, he enjoyed his first instruction at the instrument.

At twelve years of age,he bought a record with Beethoven sonatas. This became one of the peak-experiences of his life… From that moment, this music did not leave him alone…

He now wished to have a grand piano. With the aid of the saved children allowance, Patrick got a Yamaha grand piano.

Until his 14th year, the young Holming wanted actually to study natural sciences, however, after two trial weeks at a lab, he discarded the idea; From then on, he only knew one goal: To become a pianist! He sought out a Swedish pianist of repute: Ingemar Hedvall – a pupil of Paul Badura-Skoda/Vienna – and took lessons from him.

1987 Patrick Holming went to Austria, where he studied at the university for music and performing arts (Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst) in Graz: piano with Prof. Chung Lee and Prof. Annamaria Bodoky-Krause, chamber music and song-accompaniment with Prof. Georg Pammer, harpsichord and thorough-bass with Prof. Franz Zebinger.

His piano teachers (1997) and masters degrees (1998) were both awarded with distinction.

Between 1994 and 1999, he studied harpsichord, accompaniment and ancient music at the Johann-Josef-Fux-conservatory/Graz with Prof. Margret Bogner.

Patrick Holming has participated in several master classes, notably with Robert Riefling (Oslo) and Rudolf Kehrer (Vienna).

He has researched piano performance.His master’s thesis became a very important writing for pianists and piano pedagogues: “Die Psychologie der Klaviertechnik; ein Kompendium der wichtigsten grundlegenden Schriften über psychologische Aspekte der Klaviertechnik”.

In addition to his concert activity, performing as a soloist and accompanist in several countries, Patrick Holming is also a teacher: since 1989 he teaches piano, harpsichord, keyboard, accompaniment and music theory at the Landesmusikschule Mariazell in Austria.

He has also lectured various groups of piano pedagogues, e.g. EPTA (European piano Teachers Association) and together with Univ. Prof. Richard Parncutt at the university for music and performing arts (Universität für Musik und darstellende Kunst) in Graz.

Other events this fall are as follows.

Appeal in order to build a Glass Partition
at the back of the church

We are starting a plan for securing the necessary financing of a glass wall at the back of the church, which will enable us, among other things, to hold a Sunday School every Sunday. We have also applied for a grant that may help us. But we cannot afford to wait on possible grants since we consider it to be URGENT that we start the Sunday School as soon as possible.
We have commissioned the arkitekt to produce a more realistic cost analysis of the project and to produce drawings for the same.
The analysis shows that the total remaining cost ought to be about 440 500 kr. minus the 55 250 kr. already debited for the sketches needed for a preliminary approval by Länsstyrelsen.

Can you please help us
