Barada team member Cindy Powers is a church musician and part-time Music Director at St Michael’s Catholic Church in nearby Greenfield, Indiana. Christmas is both a busy and fun time for her, as Cindy spends her free time engaged in weekly evening choir practices and weekend practices with other groups, all preparing music for their Christmas performances. She also plays piano for several groups and organizations around east-central Indiana.
In 2015, Cindy provided piano accompaniment for two young adults presenting a Christmas Concert on December 20 as a free-will offering to benefit the yearly Parish Youth Mission Trip. She also accompanied the choir for the 5:00 PM Mass on Christmas Eve, Midnight Mass on Christmas Eve and the 10:00 AM Mass on Christmas Morning. Her children and their spouses arrived home on Dec 26th to celebrate the family Christmas, completing her Christmas joy.
