Music & Arts
Music and art are creative expressions of our faith.
We welcome all who wish to share their musical gifts and talents.
Third Sundays Monthly
Love to sing but short on time? Parish Choir is a once-a-month opportunity to sing with the choir during the 8:45 am worship service, without the weekly time commitment. No choir experience necessary—the music is chosen for the broadest range of musical experience. You can opt to join us on the third Sunday of most months, with a required rehearsal the Wednesday prior. Contact Ben Outen to learn more and sign up.
Christ Church Choir
Rehearsals: Thursdays, 7 – 9 pm
Services: Sundays at 8:45 & 11:15 am (Holy Eucharist in the Church)
The Christ Church Choir comprises singers from all walks of life who share a common dedication to extraordinary music-making and to the role of choral singing within the Episcopal liturgy. Repertoire covers a wide range of styles and languages from our classical choral heritage. The choir is directed by Ben Outen. We welcome singers with choral experience and vocal confidence.
Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth.
– Psalm 100:2

All Saints’ Hall
Each week there are 7 – 15 songs to learn at home, arriving with them perfected by 7:30 am Sunday morning. It is a big, but rewarding, commitment!

Band positions include (but are not limited to): singers, keyboardists, drummers, percussionists, bassists, guitarists, other stringed instruments such as mandolin, horns such as trumpet, saxophone, and trombone, etc. AV positions include: projection operator, sound engineer, livestream mix engineer.

Worship the Lord with gladness; come into his presence with singing.

Youth & Children
We offer a fun, faith-based choral music education program, with an emphasis on the development of life-long skills and belonging to a diverse community. It’s a great way for children to explore their artistic abilities and discover the joys of teamwork and leadership.
Choristers learn to read music, vocal skills, and performance etiquette for concerts and worship services, based on the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) training program, led by our professional music staff.
Pre-K & Kindergarten
Rehearsals: Wednesdays, 5 – 5:30 pm
Services: Participation in Discovery service (quarterly)
Pre-kindergarten (age 4) and kindergarten students learn the basics of making music and healthy singing by playing musical games. Music Club includes the Orff approach, combining music, movement, drama, and speech into lessons that are similar to a child’s world of play.
