MUSIC AND CHOIRS
Make a Joyful Noise
Music in worship is an integral and active part of our life together as a community of faith. Choirs offer singers from ages four to ninety four the opportunity to help lead worship, singing a variety of music from classical to contemporary. Handbells bring unique and beautiful sounds to worship. Pipe organ, piano, and other instruments support the singing of all worshippers and present solo sounds as well. For more information about a particular group, please contact the director of that group.
Young singers age 4 through first grade are invited. The Cherub Choir usually sings at worship once per month on either Saturday or Sunday.
YOUTH & ALLELUIA CHOIRS
Each group performs about once per month. In months with very special church celebrations, we may sing twice.
The Youth Choir is open to students in grades 2 through 4. We rehearse on Wednesdays from 5:45 - 6:15pm.
The Alleluia Singers is open to students in grades 5 through 8. Their rehearsal is also on Wednesdays from 5:00 to 5:45pm.
Senior Choir is a group for everyone. We are a close knit family that performs music of all choral genres. Come and join us! We are looking for new members and would love for you to join us for the upcoming season. If you are interested in learning more about the senior choir, contact the director, John Hughes, or just show up in the sanctuary on a Sunday mornings at 9:15am! Just come (make sure to check the church calendar to see if the choir is meeting)!
The Chancel Ringers handbell ensemble brings a different sound to worship. Using 5 octaves of handbells and 3 octaves of handchimes, this lively group plays a variety of styles including classical, contemporary and of course, hymn favorites. Chancel Ringers rehearses Wednesdays (7:00-8:15) September-May and typically plays for worship one Sunday each month. For more information, contact Angie Schmidt, Director.
THE PIPE ORGAN AT OUR SAVIOR'S
The pipe organ at Our Savior’s Lutheran Church was built in 1985 by the French-Canadian firm, Orgues Létourneau Ltée, for a church in Canada and installed at Our Savior’s in May, 2002. The instrument has two 58-note keyboards for the hands and a 32-note keyboard for the feet. It has 24 stops, 36 sets of pipes, 1830 pipes, and weighs about 6 tons.
