About Advent’s Music
Advent is proud of the many ways singers and instrumentalist use their musical gifts to provide a rich, uplifting spiritual presence in weekly worship and at special church and community events throughout the year. Here are some of the ways YOU are invited to share the joy of music at Advent:
Advent Adult Choir
Rehearsals are held Wednesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:15 pm from September – May. The choir sings during Sunday service primarily on the first and third Sundays of each month. The choir also sings at special services on Ash Wednesday, Good Friday, and Christmas Eve. Choir is a great ensemble for all vocal skill levels and the schedule is very accessible for those with hectic lifestyles. New choir members are always welcome!
This women’s ensemble shares contemporary and traditional music in worship once monthly (usually the second Sunday) and on special occasions. Rehearsals take place Wednesday evenings after Adult Choir rehearsal.
Gospel and contemporary worship music is the focus of this all male ensemble that shares the gift of song in worship periodically on Sundays as well as at special services. This particular ensemble is meant for singers skilled at sight reading and solo part singing. Rehearsals are held Wednesday evenings before Adult Choir rehearsal.
Children’s Choir – Sundays from 11:15-11:45am
The Children’s Choir is for children ages 4 and 5 and in Kindergarten, 1st and 2nd grades and will meet on Sunday mornings after worship from 11:15 to 11:45 am. We’ll officially begin on Sunday, Sept. 24 and rehearse on most Sundays. Rehearsals will take place in the pre-school room and refreshments will be provided for the children there. Parents can easily attend the Blessings closing at the end of Faith Builders in Wesley Hall at 11:05, walk their child next door into the preschool room and then enjoy a cup of coffee in the lobby with other parents for 30 minutes. Mark your calendar for performance dates on Sundays Oct. 29 and Dec. 17.
Kid’s Who Sing – Rehearsing on several Friday afternoons from 4:30-5:15pm
Kids Who Sing is for children and youth grades 3rd through 8th. We’ve got lots of amazing talent in this grade range and we’re going to make it easy for kids who really like to sing to attend just a few rehearsals and then perform in worship. There will be three selected Friday afternoons that lead up to a performance date starting with rehearsing on Fridays Oct. 6, 13 and 27 to sing on Oct. 29 and again in December rehearsing on Fridays Dec. 1, 8 and 15 to sing on Dec. 17.
