Westminster’s music ministry provides opportunity for many to use gifts and talents, reflecting the goodness and joy of God’s creation. The Music and Arts ministry of Westminster welcomes all ages and skill to join us.
Westminster Choir – Wednesdays, 7–8:30 pm, starting September 7. The Westminster Choir leads worship most Sundays during the school year. We also sing for special services, present an Advent/Christmas program, and partner with other organizations.
Short-term choir opportunities:
Festival Advent Worship on December 18: Rehearse October 5–December 18, 8–8:30 pm
Thanksgiving Eve Service: Rehearse October 26–November 23, 8–8:30 pm
Festival of Lights with Jewish Family Services on December 11: Rehearse November 23–December 11
This year we are initiating a rotation of smaller ensembles to lead worship at special services throughout the year. The hope is that the shorter time commitment will allow those whose schedules don’t allow them to participate in one or more of these ensembles.
