Saint Martin's Music
Music is a vibrant part of worship and congregational life at St. Martin's Lutheran Church. It takes the participation and enthusiasm of many to create the magic and beauty of music that warms and inspires our worship services. Send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org to join this lively ministry of Saint Martin's.
The Saint Martin's Chancel Choir explores five centuries of great sacred repertoire. Gathering for a common purpose unites our singers into a close-knit community of faith and joy. Rehearsals are Wednesdays, 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. We also meet on Sundays at 9:15 to prepare for 10:00 worship. The choir's membership includes folks who read music and others who do not read music. We all love to sing, and enjoy the process of learning new pieces. Our choir leads the musical portions of the liturgy, celebrating the rich tradition of Lutheran music.
Ringing handbells is a focused group activity! Musicians are interconnected by sharing notes
in the scale, playing two to six bells. We have four octaves of Schulmerich handbells, allowing us to play a wide variety of music. St. Martin's Ringers gather several times a year. After four Wednesday rehearsals ( 6:15-7:15 in the sanctuary), we play for worship, then break for a few weeks. Not everyone plays every segment of the year; this allows busy people to participate in this unique musical expression. For the 2013-2014 season we will play:
1. Autumn-- Sunday, October 6
2. Christmas-- CAROL SERVICE Sunday, December 15
3. Winter-- Sunday, February 2
4. Lent-- Sunday, March 30
5. Spring-- Sunday, May 18
