Music

Join a music group!

If you like to sing or play an instrument, please join us as we make music together in worship and fellowship. Rehearsals take place weekly from September until June.

Our adult choir rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:30pm until 9:00pm, and special anthems are performed during worship throughout most of the year. Seasonal opportunities for a children’s choir allow our youngest participants to perform as well.

Our handbell choir also rehearses on Thursday evenings from 6:30pm until 7:15pm, performing several times during the year. New members can join us anytime. No prior experience is needed, and our Youth members are welcome to join us.

IMG_9661 edInstrumentalists add greatly to our music program, and we are fortunate to have talented musicians who can perform as an ensemble or individually during the pre-service or post-service on Sundays or as accompaniment for the choir’s anthem. Please contact our Music Director Rich Barnett, for more information about joining our music program.

Children’s Music Camp

St. Luke Lutheran Church offers a one-week free music camp each July for school-aged students in first through the 8th grade. Students learn the songs, dialogue, and motor movements to a Bible story-inspired children’s play, culminating with a performance for parents, friends, and church members on Friday evening. This annual summer camp has become a favorite summertime activity, with children and their siblings returning again the following year!

Concert Venue

Musicians and choral programs have found our sanctuary to be an ideal music venue for concerts and student music recitals both large and small. From the classical music of a virtuoso Russian pianist, to the spirited sounds of an American jazz orchestra, to the inspiring young voices of a children’s choir from Uganda, we have much to offer the music enthusiast.
