Music

The arts have a vital role in our worship. The arts include visual arts as well the design of the worship space. Of all the arts, music has traditionally had a prominent role in Lutheran worship. Music invites the participation of those who are gathered to worship, and helps to form a unity of shared expression from the individual voices in the assembly.

 

The primary voice in worship is the voice of the congregation. The voice of our congregation in song at our 10:45 AM worship is strengthened and supported by Chancel Choir. The Chancel Choir leads congregational singing of hymns, and, at most gatherings, offers its own sung proclamation and praise for the benefit of all who are gathered.

 

The Chancel Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings from September to May. Rehearsals begin at 7 PM. If you are interested in participating in the Chancel Choir, please contact our interim Director of Music (and the Chancel Choir), Kevin Freaney. You may reach him by phone at or by email at stjohnsmusic@rcn.com. You do not need to be a member of St. John’s to sing in our Choir.

 

Mr. Freaney is interested in re-organizing a Bell Choir and a Youth Choir (Grades 6-12) to further enhance our worship, and to develop musical gifts. Please contact him if are interested in either of these opportunities.
