Andra Moran to Lead Youth Choir at 2009 General Assembly

Andra MoranDisciples youth interested in music face a treat at the 2009 General Assembly.
Well-known recording artist, Andra Moran, will serve as youth choir director at the 2009 General Assembly, being held in Indianapolis, Ind., on July 29 through August 2. The choir will sing during the Friday night worship service at General Assembly, when General Minister and President Sharon Watkins preaches on "Wholeness in a Fragmented World."

Youth of the Assembly will meet to rehearse with Andra in preparation for worship.

The daughter of two Disciples ministers, Andra’s faith plays a central role in her song writing. So does her range of experiences living all over the world as part of an Army chaplain’s family.

Currently, Andra is touring nationally in support of her latest Insta-Rock Records release, "Listening." The liner notes boast the names of some of Nashville’s most accomplished musicians, whose skills shine brightly on this lush and quiet record. "Listening" is the follow-up to Andra’s two previous recordings: 2003’s acoustic EP, "The Someday Sessions" and 2001’s "If Not for This," with another Disciple, Josh Elson, produced by Dexter Green.

In addition to her recordings, Andra’s songs have also been published in a collection of print music entitled Chalice Praise through the Christian Board of Publication.
