"Each musician a minister - in the name of our gracious Lord."
Serve with Music...
Our many ensembles are gathering points of joy, but there is more than rehearsal and performance to our meetings. Music enables us to experience God’s presence in our lives and invites us to share God’s love with others. Everyone who joins an ensemble is a worship leader in training. We are a community of music ministers leading God’s people in deep, dynamic and diverse worship experiences.
There are many ways we touch people in His name. Arlene Wolf’s grassroots leadership fueling Sunshine Singers visits assisted living facilities; Carol Tolbert, with her cello, sharing an afternoon of chamber music with a cancer patient who loves playing piano; Jennifer Williams teaching children violin; or the RBCPC Concert Committee’s annual scholarship award encouraging a deserving college music major.
Traditional Music Choirs
Trinity Singers focuses on presenting classical choral literature from all ages, reinterpreting this great repertory for today’s traditional celebrations. This group sings monthly in the 11:30 worship service.
The Chancel Choir is the church’s largest choral ensemble, made up of adult men and women who enjoy praising God through song. We sing a variety of choral works each Sunday at the 8:30 and/or 11:30 worship services, as well as in concert.
Joyful Noise is a 12 to 16-voice ensemble that sings each month in Traditional worship, occasionally in Contemporary worship and also at special events. Their repertory crosses stylistic boundaries searching for new and contemporary expressions of praise.
The Sanctuary Orchestra is open to all intermediate players, regardless of age. We prepare a wide range of literature for traditional and contemporary worship services , as well as accompanying the Chancel Choir on special occasions.
The RBCPC Sanctuary Organ lies at the heart of Traditional Worship. Weekly preludes and postludes, drawn from the entire organ repertory, along with exciting congregational hymn settings provide many meaningful moments for worshippers.
