OUR MUSIC PROGRAM
Our music program is a vital part of our community of faith.
The Senior Choir, under the direction Music Director Victoria Wagner, sings most Sunday mornings from September through May. Adults and high school students who enjoy singing and are willing to commit to rehearsals and services are warmly welcomed.
The choir’s repertoire ranges from renaissance motets to spirituals, from classical masterworks to jazz, and from works of Buxtehude sung in German to African songs sung in the Zulu or Bantu languages. Weekly rehearsals are on Thursday evenings and prior to Sunday worship. There are opportunities for short term participation, such as Advent-Christmas, or Lent-Easter, or “Sunday-only Choir” (without midweek rehearsals). There are also opportunities for solos or small ensemble singing.
There are also our young Hosanna Singers, as well as opportunities for our high school youth to sing in the worship service and participate in special services and events.
Instrumentalists from our own church community and professional musical circles also enhance our worship. They accompany the choir, play the prelude or postlude, or provide musical leadership for the entire service.
