Hymns of Hope

Every Sunday
9:00–9:30 MST
CJ’s Facebook page

Can the coronavirus shut down music? No! To bring cheer and hope to souls shut up in their homes, every Sunday CJ has been streaming live piano music from his home. Each week has a theme, and CJ takes requests beforehand and during the stream for what he should play. He then comes up with impromptu arrangments, often of two songs weaved together.

Feel free to join live or watch later on CJ’s Facebook page. (If you have trouble finding a live broadcast on Facebook, try searching for “Hymns of Hope” and the day’s date.)

You can also see past livestreams on the Hymns of Hope blogpage.

CJ has also created a Google Drive folder where he has archived arrangements of public-domain songs from past livestreams.
