Grace Chicago is well-known for its unique music. The Christian Church has a rich musical heritage and Grace's professional musicians tap into that full history with unique twists on the ancient and the modern. Our Interim Director of Music, Davin Youngs, is a singer, entrepreneur and teacher whose direction guides our weekly worship service. He collaborates with Ben Lansing on guitars, banjo, mandolin, and lap steel, and drummer/percussionist Tim Mulvenna. On any given week the ensemble might be joined by guests from Chicago's rich jazz, pop, and classical communities including our own Annie Higgins and Jason Toth, from the group Weatherman.
