MUSIC PROGRAM OVERVIEW
Music is an integral part of our worship services. It has the ability to inspire, deepen our spirituality, and help connect us with one another. We invite you to learn about our many musical offerings and ways in which you can participate.
Our Senior Choir numbers about 30 members. We welcome all who love to sing. We rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7:15 to 8:45, and we sing every Sunday. Please drop in any time, and contact Bill Cowdery for more information: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our Senior Handbell Choir has about twelve members, and we invite new ringers warmly! We rehearse on Thursday evenings from 6:00 to 7:00, and we play on Sundays about once a month. You are welcome to contact Bill about ringing with us: email@example.com.
CHILDREN’S & YOUTH MUSIC
Our children and youth participate in a Junior Handbell Choir, Junior Chimes Choir, Junior Choir, Pentecost Singers, and Instrumental Ensemble. Visit our children’s and youth music page for pictures, videos, and more information!
SPECIAL MUSIC EVENTS
Our Senior Choir offers two Music Sundays each year in May and December, singing great works by Mozart, Handel, Bach, Schubert, and modern composers like John Rutter. We bring in some of our town’s best players to work with us.
Ithaca Brass, the faculty quintet from Ithaca College, join us for a Sunday before Christmas to play music during our service, and a to lead carol-sing for everyone afterward. On Easter, trumpets and timpani play for Handel’s “Hallelujah,” with all congregation members invited to come up and sing along. Musicians join at other special times, such as our Epiphany Kings’ pageant every two years. We are always looking for ways to enrich our musical life.
