Adult Handbell Choir
The Adult Handbell Choir rehearses weekly on Thursday evenings, September-May. An experienced ensemble, this group challenges its members with exciting music and special techniques. New ringers are always welcome, whether experienced or “new-in-training”. The ability to count rhythm accurately and having a good sense of rhythm are great qualities for becoming a member. Be prepared to have fun!
The Atonement Singers lead worship at the 9:00 and 10:30 services from September through May. This mixed ensemble of adult singers (high school and up) is open to all who enjoy singing—music reading is not a requirement and no audition is necessary! The choir sings a variety of music from Bach to the gospel, enjoying good music and fellowship each week. Making the connections between music, faith, and worship is their calling and their delight!
Instrumental musicians of all ages participate regularly in worship as soloists or in ensembles. Brass, strings, woodwinds, reeds, piano, guitars, and percussion instruments are often used to help lead worship. Opportunities for duets, trios, quartets, small ensembles, and accompanists occur throughout the year. Rehearsals are scheduled as needed.
Flute players of all ages and abilities come together on several occasions during the year to play in worship. Rehearsals are specially scheduled in advance of each occasion. Do you have an idle flute in your closet? Many who participate are reawakening a love for an instrument laid aside long ago, and are finding a community for rebuilding skills while having a fun together. Others are experienced musicians, or young novice players. Bring them altogether, and it’s a great sound and a great time.
