Zion's history is rich with music, as is the case with most Lutherans. Martin Luther exclaimed that music was an "excellent gift of God," and at Zion we continue to support this gift from God. Zion is blessed with fine instruments, including 2 pipe organs, and 2 grand pianos. Zion's committment to music is a strong one, and as the Music Minister, I am blessed to be a part of this great congregation. It is my hope that you can find a place to participate in the Music Ministry at Zion. I look forward to seeing new faces give the music ministry a try.
Matthew Walsh, Music Minister
In the fall of 2016 members of Zion's Music Ministry came together and formed a covenant with each other. You can view a copy of the document by clicking the subtitle above.
Zion's congregation is the most important musical group. The congregation is hcarged with most of the singing within the Lutheran Liturgy. This is the easiest choir to be a member, just show up on Sunday Mornings or Monday Evenings!
Zion's Sanctuary Choir, rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 7:15 pm in the choir. This group rehearses regularly on Wednesdays from September through May. June and August rehearsals are held on Sunday Mornings, with the month of July as respite. There is no audition for this choir. If you want to give the choir a try, you get a 2 - 3 week grace period before you sing with the choir on Sunday Morning. If you have questions about the choir please contact Matthew Walsh, firstname.lastname@example.org.
Zion owns 4 octaves of Malmark Handbells, and 2 octaves of handchimes. The Bell Choir rehearses Wednesday evenings at 6:00 pm in the Sanctuary. Rehearsals typically run from September through May, with the summer off. This is a non-audtioned group, all are welcome to give it a try. If you have questions about the bell choir please contact Matthew Walsh, email@example.com.
Zion welcomes guest musicians to play in our worship service. If you would like to offer your talents, please contact Matthew Walsh to speak with him about offering your talents in worship.
