Music is such an integral part of worship at Eastminster. From the prelude to the benediction, the Gloria Patri or the anthem, music permeates and often provides a means of spiritual expression like no other method of worship can. Whether one is listening, playing, or singing, music speaks to the heart, touches the soul, and stirs emotion in ways that the spoken word cannot.
The sanctuary choir sings at the 10:30 AM worship service on Sunday mornings from September through May. Each Sunday, the choir offers an introit, anthem, and choral prayer response. The repertoire includes traditional English anthems from the past as well as recent works by American composers. The choir also frequently presents an extended work for the annual Maundy Thursday Service during Holy Week. The choir is open to everyone with a love of choral singing and no audition is required. Rehearsals are at 7:00 PM on Thursday from mid August through early May. To find out more about the choir, contact the Director of Music by email: email@example.com
Children & Youth Programs
Many times throughout the year, our children prepare musical presentations to share with the congregation. Examples of these events include Vacation Bible School musical presentations, Christmas pageants and Youth Emphasis services.
Piano and Organ
Eastminster is fortunate to have two excellent musical instruments in its sanctuary to lead worship: a Yamaha concert grand piano and a Casavant pipe organ.
