Music is one of the primary ways in which we worship, love and serve our Lord. We strive to offer a rich, relevant program that engages the congregation in worship and creates opportunities to share the wealth of artistic talents in our community. Music, together with the Word, provides a genuine opportunity to encounter the holy.
The Chancel Choir, under the direction of Dr. Harold Daugherty, consists of both volunteer and professional singers and sings at Sunday worship services (September through June) and at special liturgies each year, including Christmas Eve and Maundy Thursday in Holy Week. The choir also presents special Sunday afternoon concerts at Christmas and in the Spring, often accompanied by instrumentalists. The Chancel Choir rehearses Wednesday evenings at 7:30. In addition to playing at all choral worship services and concerts, our fine organist, Joseph Klice, also conducts the children’s choir, which sings at worship services throughout the year and for special events. The Choraleers rehearse after the worship service on Sundays. New singers are welcome and encouraged to participate.
Our repertoire features the finest sacred organ, choral, vocal and instrumental art music from many periods and Christian traditions, including contemporary music from around the world. Our choices are diverse and broad, reflecting our eclectic community even as they honor the rich traditions and heritage of this historic church.
