I don't know. I just know some friends that go to Broadway Methodist telling me that he is there new Choir Director, I guess they may have offered him more money or maybe it is a new challenge.

First baptist was part time. When he retired from Paducah Tilghman he went to BMC. FBC already had a music guy on staff and needed to reduce payroll due to declining attendance and giving.

Heard that about FBC and that the music director and him sometimes did not see eye. I can see that with him. Don't get me wrong, he is a great director but I also know that musicians have the "it's my way or the highway" attitude. Heard that from parents who have kids who sang for him at PTHS.

FBC is a stuck up church. Maybe that's why attendance is falling off.

Considering he's the best choir director in the state, then yes it is his way or the highway! It's not like most parents would know anything about singing anyway!

Have to agree he was the best around. He will be hard to replace at PTHS, I imagine. I do know a lot of my friends' who kids went to PTHS said all the kids liked him and respected him.

First Baptist Paducah has become an embarrassment. DeWeese leaving is minor compared to everything else going on.

My son use to play Upwards there and it was nice but then the prices kept going up and up and up. Not sure if that was an Upwards thing or a FBC thing. I understand that one has to pay for things but felt it was getting to be a little much.
