Handbells

Genesis Ringers
Genesis, as the name implies, is for beginning and early advancing handbell ringers. The basics of music reading gained from piano lessons or participation in a school orchestra, band or vocal choir are helpful! Parents and students can enjoy this choir together. If you have questions, please contact Sally Harmon at [email protected].
Handbells for music readers, Wednesdays: 5:30-6:10 pm
Westminster Ringers
Our adult handbell choir is a group of people who love music and enjoy the fellowship and teamwork involved in producing beautiful handbell music together. If you can read music or have played handbells in the past and would like to join, please contact Jill Post at [email protected].
Adults, Wednesdays: 6:30 -7:30 pm

St. Andrews Brass Ensemble

Playing together in a small ensemble means working together, practicing our part on our own, and being aware of the other members of the group as we play. It's a satisfying experience to help enhance the worship service through music. If you have questions or would like to join, please contact Jill Post at [email protected].
Experienced adult players, Wednesdays: 5:30-6:30 pm

All Church Orchestra

This group includes players of a string, brass, woodwind, or percussion instrument. The orchestra plays periodically throughout the year. Whether you are learning to play your instrument or have set it aside for a number of years, you are welcome! If you have questions, please contact Jill Post at [email protected].
Grade 7 through adult, periodically

Pianists

Accompanists are encouraged to lend a hand (or two!) with our young choirs. Solos, quartets and duets can be included in worship occasionally for those interested. If you have talents in this area, please contact Pam Burns at [email protected].

Solos & Small Groups

We form small singing and instrumental ensembles throughout the year. If you have a musical talent and want to share it, we will provide a time for you to do so. Additionally, we can connect you with others for collaborative musical opportunities. If you have questions, please contact Pam Burns at [email protected].
