Music

Saint Matthew Choir
Wednesdays from 7:00 PM  - 8:30 PM and Sunday mornings (alternating early and late
services)

 
Our Choir rehearses every Wednesday from 7:00 PM - 8:30 PM in the choir room as well as
every Sunday 30 minutes before worship. We value a variety of repertoire including classical
favorites, gospel arrangements, folk tunes, and modern choral works. We also frequently
collaborate with instrumentalists. The choir sings every Sunday during the service which
offers Holy Communion and during services held on the chief holy days of our tradition.
Rehearsals are fun yet productive. All are welcome, regardless of musical experience, to join
us in song!
 
Children's Music Ministry
Sundays from 9:45 AM -10:00 AM; The third Sunday of the month from 11:00 Am - 12:00 noon;
Special occasions

 
The purpose of this ministry is to equip the children of the congregation to take an active spiritual
role in the Church’s weekly worship of God. During the beginning of Sunday School the children
gather to practice the service music sung in the Sunday service, as well as a wide selection of
hymns. In addition they prepare a song to sing at the Offertory of the 11:00 service on the third
Sunday of each month, and for other special occasions.


Instrumental Solos and Ensemble
Special Occasions


From time to time, instrumentalists play at the Prelude or Offertory, or join the organ to provide
accompaniment for the choir. The church is currently working on a new initiative for
instrumentalists—a multi-generational parish band. Three or four times a year, the plan is to
invite instrumentalists of all ages and stages of musical development for one or two short
rehearsals and then to accompany the hymns at a Sunday service. Please, contact the Director
of Music if you would like to play a solo or participate in the parish band.
