Grace Notes, a music trio with flute, guitar and percussion, was formed in March of 2017 as an outreach ministry of Good Shepherd Lutheran Church.
Group leader and flautist Sandy Morris, guitarist Al Varnell and percussionist Gae Varnell will perform a variety of music selections including Thanksgiving music, hymns and selections from the 30s to 70s. Ms. Morris is the conductor of the Chattanooga Youth Philharmonic Orchestra and the UTC Symphony Orchestra, assistant conductor for the Chattanooga Community Orchestra and Chattanooga Area Flute Society, as well as music director for Good Shepherd Lutheran Church. The Varnells, who have been playing music for over 60 years, both have performed at the Signal Mountain Playhouse and Good Shepherd Lutheran Church Orchestra, among others.
