Music

“Let every instrument be tuned for praise;  let all rejoice who have a voice to raise.”  –ELW Hymn #851

Immanuel has a rich tradition of glorifying God through music.  This happens in the pews each Sunday when our congregation joins together in song.  It happens from the balcony when our choirs sing.   God is glorified when  an instrumentalist,  bell choir, flute choir or brass ensemble plays.  All are warmly welcomed into one of the following Immanuel Choirs:

Adult Choirs

Jubilate Ringers

This bell choir for high schoolers and adults prepares handbell anthems as well as occasional accompaniments for hymns and psalms. The Jubilate Ringers play in worship once a month.  Wednesdays, 6:45-7:45 p.m.

Cantorei

The adult choir (high schoolers, too!) leads worship on most Sundays from September to May as well as festival services. The choir learns a wide variety of choral repertoire of many different genres and hymns and liturgy as needed to lead worship. Rehearsals: Wednesdays, 7:45-9 p.m.

Brass

(grade 9 and up) All you brass players, dust off your horns! The Immanuel Brass usually plays four times a year and is very low-key. Come blast away! Call or email to get your name on the list.

Flute Choir

(grade 9 and up) Calling all flutists! Our Flute Choir meets occasionally to provide music in worship 3-4 times throughout the year. Call or email to get your name on the list.

O come, let us sing to the Lord; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! —  Psalm 95:1-2
