Family inspired to bring modern twist to hymns
The Flurie family has two great passions— religion and music—so they decided to bring them together in a family band that puts a modern twist to historic hymns.
The family, led by Bryce Alan Flurie, 46, grew up with music sung in church along with rock ‘n’ roll. He was never truly allowed to let those two worlds collide until now, with the release of his latest CD he recorded with his daughter, Tziporah Flurie. The songs on the CD feature nine public domain hymns and three original songs.
The songs are old, some of them are over 100 years old, and a lot of people think about hymns as stodgy, but they don’t have to be. They’re beautiful pieces of poetry and it’s important for the church to sing,” Flurie said. “We think there’s such a need to get these songs back into the church or re-introduce them with a much newersound.”
The Fluries are having a CD release party at their church, Redland Valley Brethren in Christ at 3555 Lewisberry Road in York Haven on July 19 at 7 p.m., with tickets priced at $15. The CDs are $10. The church gave the singing family the opportunity to lead worship around a year ago, which is where Flurie was able to create a show for the congregation and was inspired to officially create the band.
The South Mountain Baseball team, coached by Barry Horvath, won the Central Pennsylvania Baseball League championship, defeating Linglestown 5 to 0 at the Carroll Township baseball field.
