Music at St Barnabas
“Let every instrument be tuned for praise! Let all rejoice who have a voice to raise!
And may God give us faith to sing always Alleluia!” (Hymnal #420)
We love music here and work hard to have
a quality musical program.
We give thanks to our many singers -
Thursdays 7 PM - Choir rehearsal in the Music Room (located in the lower level of the Parish Hall). Thank you to all those who joined us this summer for the pick-up choir! And welcome back to our regulars. If you are interested in joining the choir or want more information, please contact Deb Gemma at email@example.com.
Children's Handchime Choir
October 21, 11:45-12:15 a.m. - We are forming a children's handchime choir that will meet during November and December. Children and youth, grade 2 and older, are invited to attend an introductory session in the Music Room. An organizational meeting with parents will follow. Preliminary plans are to prepare a musical selection for a Sunday in November and on Christmas Eve. Advance sign up appreciated but not required. For more information, contact Deb Gemma at firstname.lastname@example.org. Come, ring those chimes!
A beautiful Steinway piano given for the sanctuary
The piano is a gift of Fredrica Thompsett, given in thanksgiving for the life of her aunt, Alice Emily Harris. It will be used regularly on Sunday mornings, supplementing the music of our Hutchings pipe organ, and will be a great resource for accompanying classical, contemporary and children’s music. We are so grateful for this generous gift!
