Our Music ministry is an active and vital component of our service. In years past for our Choir Recognition Sundays, we have focused on the music. This year we would like to focus on the many members of both our Chancel Choir and Choral Bells Choir whose talent, dedication, and enthusiasm are very much appreciated.
Director Melanie Chambers began her second year as the Chancel Choir Director. Prior to the start in the Fall, Melanie offered a How To Read Sheet Music Workshop in August. Melanie led the Chancel Choir in a presentation of Classic Christmas melodies in December and incorporated new multicultural music in various languages during the year.
Known for being a “team sport” it is also very physically demanding to be a part of the Choral Bells Choir. One must rely on the others on either side of them to achieve great musical results. A ringer’s assigned bells is a melody or a chord fragment that the whole bell choir counts on. We are especially thankful for our Bell Choir Director Morgan Sarbello who quietly and lovingly leads us to ring as one.
