Praise the Lord with harp: sing unto him with the psaltery and an instrument of ten strings. Sing unto him a new song; play skillfully with a loud noise. For the word of the Lord is right; and all his works are done in truth. Psalm 33:1-4
In the Episcopal Church, we tend to reject the idea of either/or in favor of both/and. Nowhere is the idea of both/and more apparent than in our approach to music. Many of us feel closest to God when we hear — and sing — lovely, traditional hymns. Others feel inspired when they hear and sing the sacred in more contemporary music. In the Christ’s Church MusicMakers group, we love both traditional hymns and contemporary songs, secular and sacred, that deepen our understanding of, and connection with, God.
We invite both experienced vocalists and exuberant newcomers to join our group and amplify the joy we all find in music. We practice on Tuesday nights from 7:00-8:30 PM under the guidance of music director Kathy Mordeaux, an accomplished pianist and composer. We sing at the 10:30 AM service almost every Sunday and at special events throughout the year.

We also invite those interested in only occasional solos, duets, and such, either vocal or instrumental, to be part of our music program. There is always room for another musician. If you are interested, contact Kathy at email@example.com.
