Music

Though music is only one component of worship, St. B's has long been known for excellence in blending traditional and modern styles for each service. 


On any given Sunday morning, the loft might contain, an organist, choir, mic'd vocalists, a guitarist, pianist, drummer, bassist, violinist, flautist, trumpeter, piper, and an accordion. We believe worship unites us with God and with all believers across time and space. A glorious part of our tradition is that our liturgy is ever ancient and ever new, so whether you prefer the hymns and organ or praise choruses with guitars, there is a place for you here.

Musicians

Vocalists and instrumentalists (classical and contemporary) are needed to assist in leading worship in our Sunday morning services. If you sing or play an instrument--ANY instrument--proficiently, there may well be a place for you, either in our main Sunday services or assisting in other ministries.


Most Sunday morning worship participants are scheduled once a month. Scores and audio samples are distributed via email during the week before each service.  


Commencing fall 2021, rehearsals are Sunday mornings at 7:30 a.m., followed by 2 morning services at 8:30 and 11:00am.

The Chamber Singers

The Chamber Singers is a mixed choir of more experienced singers that meets weekly from September through May, offering classic and modern choral selections regularly throughout the year. The Chamber Singers meet on Wednesday evenings from 7 - 8:30 p.m.  The Chamber Singers are on break during the pandemic.


Some basic music-reading ability is required.

Children's Choirs

Singing in the choir on Wednesday nights is a great way for children, ages 4 yrs. through 6th grade to develop their musical gifts. It's also a great way for the whole family to connect with others at St. B's. Our Kids Choir is currently on break.


If you have any interest in helping us with this ministry in the future, please let David Madeira know.

The Parish Choir

The Parish Choir meets seasonally to prepare for special services during Advent and Holy Week. All adults (high school and above) are welcome to attend. The Parish Choir is a perfect opportunity for those who love to sing but are only able to make a seasonal commitment. 


We usually hold a half day retreat to kick off the Parish Choir season and rehearse on Wednesdays from 7 - 8:30 p.m. in place of The Chamber Singers. The Parish Choir is on break during the pandemic.
