As our Music Director Bruce Modeen has told the choir, we are here to make a joyful noise to the Lord and have some fun while doing it. Our sanctuary choir welcomes all voices, regardless of skill or experience. All you need is a desire to try!
Bruce primarily plays piano as well as guitar and the choir has sung along with both. We also have a beautiful Tracker Organ and will regularly have guest organists come and play. Additionally, we welcome all musical talents so if you play an instrument as well, you are encouraged to work with Bruce and see how we can make it part of our worship music.
Our musical selection is varied. Sometimes it may be a traditional hymn tune or anthem, sometimes it may be more modern contemporary church music and sometimes it may be secular music that has a great message or good connection to a theme. The choir members are encouraged to share their own ideas with the music director and help shape the content of what we do.
Our choir formally practices September through June on Wednesday nights from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. and warms up for thirty minutes on Sunday morning at 8:30 a.m. before the worship service at 9:30.
Over the summer months, there is not a formal choir, but we encourage anyone that may want to sing a solo or share their other musical talents with the congregation. Just speak to music director Bruce to arrange it.
