Ask a member of the Northminster Chancel Choir (adults 15+) what they like to sing best and you will get a lot of responses: Amazing Grace with jazzy piano accompaniment, Hope for Resolution from South Africa with drums, one of the great Requiems with full orchestra, anything at Christmas and Easter, old spirituals, familiar great hymns, Taize chants, Bach in German, or majestically on the pipe organ alone. Ask a member of the Northminster congregation what they like to hear and sing themselves, you'll get the same answer. The Music Ministry is dedicated to providing a variety of quality experiences for all members. Music is commanded in scripture and occupies a prominent place in worship. The purpose of the ministry is to:
The adult Chancel choir, which includes an ensemble and soloists, and often guest instrumentalists, participate in one or both Sunday morning services and present two major works a year with orchestra. In addition, Northminster offers choirs for children and older youth, many of whom share their instrumental as well as vocal talents. Participation in our vocal and bell choirs is intended to be a religious, educational and recreational experience which seeks to develop character, discipline, spirituality and responsibility.
