Do you love to sing? Please consider joining our choir and participating in a vital ministry. The choir musically leads our services each Sunday at 10 am. The choir’s repertoire includes great masterpieces from our Anglican tradition as well as beloved classics along with spirituals and contemporary choral works. We have openings for all voice parts.
In John’s Gospel read today, we hear of Jesus great mandate to his disciples at the Last Supper, “a new commandment , that you love one another. Just as I have loved you…” Much of the music sung today, both by the choir and the congregation, is a reflection of Jesus' command to love one another.
At the Offertory, we’ll hear Simon Lole’s graceful anthem “The Father’s Love." The British composer, conductor and organist, Simon Lole, has served both Sheffield Cathedral and Salisbury Cathedral as Organist and Choirmaster. As an arranger, Lole is much in demand and produces a great deal of music for the BBC and is heard frequently as Music Director of BBC Radio 4’s “Daily Service.” He has over 60 published choral works to his credit. He also has worked extensively as a crossover musician arranging for such musicians as Aled Jones, Camilla Kerslake and the rock band Archive.
The Jubilation Choir is open to boys and girls 5th grade through high school. The choir performs on Youth Sundays and special services during the program year. The choir rehearses after the 10:00 am service from 11:15 to noon in the choir room. Schola Cantorum also invites those interested to learn to play our set of hand chimes and other instruments while developing musicianship skills.
JOY worship runs all year long! Sunday service and eucharist perfect for children ages infant-5yrs. Come be part of the fun from 9:15-9:45AM.
