MUSIC

There are many opportunities for people of all ages and gifts to share in the musical and worship life of our church. Whether it is participation in a vocal or handbell choir or the all-church orchestra or brass group, we encourage sharing the gifts and talents that we have been given!

Vocal Music

Children’s & Youth Choirs:

 

  • K-Grade 2 Choir
  • Grades 3-6 Choir
  • Grades 7-12 Choir

 

Sanctuary Choir
The Sanctuary Choir participates in worship nearly every Sunday during the program year. New members are welcomed throughout the year, and snowbirds are welcome to participate before they “fly away” for the winter! 

Instrumental Music

Genesis Ringers
Grade 6-adults. 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! 
 
Westminster Ringers Handbell Choir
Adults. Handbell choirs are truly founded on teamwork, and this group in particular thrives with players who can read music. 
 
St. Andrew’s Brass Ensemble
Proficient adult players.

All-Church Orchestra
Grade 7 through adult, periodically. This group includes players of a string, brass, woodwind, or percussion instrument. They play 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! 
 
Solos and Small Groups
Year-Round. We form small singing and instrumental ensembles throughout the year. If you have a musical talent and want to share it occasionally, we will provide a time for you to do so. Additionally, we can connect you with others for collaborative musical opportunities. 

 

Upcoming Concert & Worship Programming:

December 17: Carols by Candlelight. Join us on Sunday evening at 6:30 pm. This distinctive musical event will feature all our church’s vocal and instrumental ensembles, as well as congregational carol-singing in a celebration of word and seasonal music. Our children’s Christmas program is incorporated into this service.

December 6-20, Advent Vespers & Feb. 21-Mar.21, Lenten Vespers. Join us in the Jennie Roberts Room from 7:00-7:25 pm as we sing Marty Haugen’s Holden Evening Prayer Wednesday evenings during Advent, to express our gratitude to God for light and life, for family and friends and the gifts of grace we receive daily from God. Vesper services will also be part of Wednesday evenings during Lent.
