"Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.” -Martin Luther
Music is a very important part of worship at Christ Lutheran Church. Our services are enhanced by the wonderful talent shared by our various music groups.
Christ Lutheran Church Sanctuary Choir is the large choral ensemble that is scheduled two Sundays each month during worship. Requirements for membership in this group are a love of music and a desire to serve as a worship leader. Vocal techniques and music reading skills are introduced during rehearsals. Weekly rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings for an hour. All are welcome and invited to participate.
Kantorei is a select quartet that participates the opposite Sundays from the Sanctuary Choir. This group is currently not open to new membership. They sing a wide variety of repertoire from historical literature through seasonal anthems. Vocal Ensembles are under the direction of Ryan Brunkhurst.
Laudamus and Large Group Instrumental Ensembles
The Instrumental program at Christ Lutheran Church currently consists of a large, diverse group of musicians and a smaller group, Laudamus, that accompanies one of the liturgies. Both groups are open to new members and would welcome any and all instruments. There is also Brass Quintet that prepares selections for festival Sundays. Instrumental ensembles are under the direction of Ryan Brunkhurst.
Celebration Bells play once a month in worship. The only requirements to join are that you are in at least 8th grade and able to count to 4. We will teach you everything else that you need to know! Weekly rehearsals are held on Thursday evenings. Both new and experienced ringers are welcome! Celebration Bells is under the direction of Kim Handrock.
