Our Music Team
The making and sharing of thought-provoking, inspiring music is valued and appreciated in our community. Sunday gatherings and community social events regularly include choral music, instrumental music, and opportunities to make music.
There is a whole community of musicians who make our gathering music possible: from pianists to string players, from saxophonists to trumpeters and guitar players. All contribute to an amazing ensemble which supports singing and offers music to feed the spirit. The Instrumental Ensemble shares instrumental music on its own and in support of choral and congregational singing. The ensemble rehearses the first and third Sundays of every month at 11:30 a.m., to prepare pieces to share during the first Sunday gathering of the month from September to June, and other times as available.
The Silvertones, a choir mostly (but not exclusively) for seniors, is under the direction of Bonnie Berg. The Silvertones rehearse one or two Saturdays a month, usually 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon, from late September to early May. The Silvertones sing two to three times a year during Sunday gatherings, perform a short spring concert during coffee time one Sunday, participate in the city-wide Seniors Choral Fest in the spring, and tour nearby care facilities at Christmas and in the spring.
The Adult Choir is collaboratively directed and accompanied by Deb Mooney and Pam Patten. Singers of all ages and experience learn diverse styles of music during rehearsals help Thursday evenings, 7:15 to 9:00 pm, from early September to early June. On average, the choir sings twice a month during Sunday gatherings, and prepares special music features for Christmas, Black History Month, Easter, and the launch of summer.
Please contact the choir directors or church office if you are interested in joining the Instrumental Ensemble or any of our choirs.
