Music is integral to worship at South Church , working to deepen the faith experience, strengthen fellowship and familiarize newcomers with the church. New singers, handbell players and instrumentalists are always welcome in our ensembles. Larry Picard, the Director of Music Ministries, can provide more information and answer questions about participation in the musical life of the church.
The Chancel Choir sings most Sundays from October through Memorial Day except the Sunday after Christmas. The Sunday schedule for this ensemble includes a 9 AM rehearsal and the service at 10 AM, plus a brief brush-up rehearsal after church. There are some Wednesday evening rehearsals at 7:30 p.m. Contact Larry Picard for a schedule at email@example.com. Volunteers are needed and welcome in all sections.
The Handbell Choir plays approximately once per month at the 10 AM service. Rehearsals are on Tuesdays from 5:00 PM to 6:15 PM and new ringers are always welcome. While prior ringing experience is not required it is very helpful to know a little bit about reading music and rhythms.
Besides for a Halloween Concert of music for organ, voices and instruments, we also present a noon-time concert series in December on Wednesdays. More details on this year’s series will be in this space soon.
