Under the leadership of Lucy Strandlien, Music Coordinator/Choir Director, Resurrection is rich with music. Our space has wonderful acoustics. Many parishioners sing in our choirs and play a variety of instruments during our worship. We are blessed to have a 2004 Brombaugh tracker organ that is used both at worship and to offer special concerts throughout the year.
Adult Choir: This choir sings at our 10:30am liturgy and on other feast days during the year. They sing music drawing on the breadth of the Church’s musical heritage, including traditional hymns, the best of contemporary works and hymns, Taize, chants, Anglican chant, early Church music, Gospel and world music. The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7:00pm to 9:00pm September through June and is directed by Lucy Strandlien. It is open to any one of high school age or older who is able to match pitch.
Choristers: Choristers is our young person’s choir. They prepare an offertory anthem for the first Sunday of each month and join with the adult choir on that Sunday to help lead us in all the hymns and music. Each year in the late spring they do a special Choristers’ concert for the Resurrection community and friends. All young people ages 5-17 are welcome to join. Choristers’ (and their families) also gather on a regular basis for fun social activities. Choristers rehearse on Wednesdays from 5:30pm. until 6:30pm September through May with a potluck dinner following, and are directed by Carrie Warner. For more information and updates, visit the Choristers page on Facebook!
Our parish musician is Margaret Gries who provides organ and piano accompaniment at our services. Thérèse Hurley provides accompaniment for the 5:30pm Saturday Mass on harp, harpsichord and piano.
