Our music ministry offers opportunities for everyone to make a joyful noise and includes our Chancel Choir, Handbell Choir, and Children’s Choir, and Contemporary Worship Praise Team. Our music ministry is under the leadership of our Director of Music and Organist Dr. Robert Schneider. Laura Leanza Preston conducts the Children’s Choir and Tracy Peebles is the Youth Praise Director.

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir is open to all interested adults and teens. This talented group of volunteer singers, professional soloists and section leaders present a wide variety of choral music to help lead our traditional worship service. In addition to their regular weekly musical offerings, the choir offers several major choral works with orchestra each year. Past offerings have included Brahms’ Requiem, Handel’s oratorio Esther and The Passion of Christ, Saint Saen’s Christmas Oratorio and Vivaldi’s Gloria.

The choir rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7:15 PM and Sunday mornings prior to the traditional service.

Handbell Choir

Our Handbell Choir adds a festive peal to the musical life of our congregation. Open to all interested adults and youth, the choir rings regularly in our worship services. Members gain technique and skill playing our three octaves of bells in the English handbell choir tradition.

The handbell choir rehearses on Thursday evenings at 6 PM.
