Music Program ~ MAKE A JOYFUL NOISE!
Pilgrim's Music Program enhances our worship services, offering a wide variety of music. Pilgrim is blessed with many gifted musicians. Our Music Committee offers something for everyone with only a small individual commitment, allowing for greater participation by all. For further information call 587-3690.
Some Sundays feature Chamber Music. Ilse-Mari Lee, Julie Gosswiller, Tom Lee, Bob Britten, Mark Sullivan, Don & Nancy Wilson, Rich & Tana Mayo, Sue, Jerry, Matt and Megan Makeever, and Karen & Alan Leech, are just some of Pilgrim's wonderful musicians who share their gifts with us.
On other Sundays our Bell Choir, the Pilgrim Peace Ringers, led by MA Bellingham, will play one or two pieces. Youth and adult ringers are always welcome! If you read music, Peace Ringers is also looking to "Adopt a Ringer" as rehearsal substitutes, (no Sunday performances required! See any ringer for details!)
Pilgrim's New Adult Choir is now forming! Jack Lehman of Pilgrim is spearheading an effort to re-establish our Adult Choir. The group plans to sing quarterly. They rehearse after worship two Sundays prior to singing. There are no auditions or prerequisites to participate other than the desire to make a joyful noise. New members are always welcome.
The Youth Choir, led by Tom Davey, welcomes new voices, including Middle School and High School Students. They rehearse after church on the second and third Sundays and at 9:15 am on fourth Sundays.
Pilgrim's talented youth will also be featured in solo or group performances on select Sundays. If you know of a youth who should be given an opportunity to shine in God's love, let Kate Bryan know so that ALL may be included.
Additional Sundays will feature our Groovin' Women choir, led by Kate Bryan. Groovin' Women welcomes women of all ages. You don't have to sight-read music, be a member of Pilgrim, or even be a great singer. You just need to have a desire to have some fun, sing a little and get to know some really spirited women! (Childcare is available for mothers needing assistance with children during rehearsals.)
Folk/Contemporary Music will also be included in services to fill music slots as needed. If you have folk or contemporary music you would like to share (instrumental or vocal), please contact Kate Bryan and she will look for a Sunday service where you can share your musical talents. Just call 587-3690.
