Music

Make a Joyful Noise Unto the Lord

Sanctuary Choir

The Sanctuary Choir is the primary choir for 10:45am worship from September through June. Adults of college age and above prepare a wide variety of music from all periods and styles of composition. No formal audition is required, but a sincere commitment to service is necessary. Rehearsal - Thursdays with a choice of morning or evening times 9:00-10:30am or 7:00-8:30pm.
During the months of July and August, we switch to our summer Men’s and Women’s Choirs - an ideal opportunity to "give choir a try" in a relaxed setting, requiring less time commitment, and open to anyone age sixth grade and above. Rehearsals take place on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:30am. The music is tuneful and accessible, and the spirit is warm, comfortable, and encouraging. Novices and old pros are all welcome.

Children, Youth and Bell Choirs

Both the Children and Youth Choirs seek to teach music in an enjoyable way that helps to foster an appreciation and love for the church and its music.

Children's Choir

For children from K-5 through fifth grade. The children experience a delightful time learning the basics of music, emphasis on ear training, rhythm and movement, note values, and music’s unique place in worship. Children also participate monthly in the worship service. Rehearsal is held Sunday afternoons from 4:15-4:45pm.

Youth Choir

Includes children grades sixth through twelfth. Students sing a variety of styles of music throughout the school year, with particular emphasis as the music leaders for Youth Sunday, as well as participation in the special services during the Lenten/Easter and Advent/Christmas seasons. Rehearsals take place on Sunday afternoons, preceding Youth Bells and Youth Fellowship.

Bell Choirs

Our handbell choirs use our wonderful 4-octave handbells and 3-octave handchimes. The bells and chimes are used as hymn accompaniments, anthem descants, and as special music for preludes, postludes, or offertories. 

Westminster Bell Choir is composed of adults of varying skill levels that can meet for rehearsals during the day, specifically Monday afternoons from 1:00-2:30pm.

Youth Bell Choir is open to youth from sixth grade through twelfth grade; and meets in conjunction with Youth Fellowship on Sunday afternoons/evenings. All rehearsals include pointers and practice in a variety of bell techniques as well as music of easy to medium difficulty. The ability to read music and a basic knowledge of rhythm are extremely helpful.
