The Aldersgate Choir, comprised of mixed voices (SATB) and conducted by Chris Robinson, is dedicated to the spiritual enhancement of our traditional worship services. Our ongoing mission is to glorify the Lord and inspire the congregation with the finest available choral literature. Rehearsals are held on Wednesday evenings from 6:30pm to 8:00pm from mid-August through the end of May. We are currently on a rotating schedule between our 8:00am and 11:00am Sunday services, ever-other week. There are seats available in all sections, and we are always seeking new talent available and willing to share their talents for the Lord!
 
 

Grace Notes is a small choral ensemble comprised of women’s voices (SSA/SSAA). We rehearse on Wednesdays from 6:00pm-6:30pm (before choir rehearsal). Performances occur sporadically throughout the season, including special music slots during the summer.

 
 
Special Music (soloists or small ensembles, vocal, instrumental or both) supply music to both our traditional services (8:00am and 11:00am) during the summer months, as well as opposite Sundays of the aforementioned every-other-week choir rotation. Accompaniment may be pre-recorded (furnished in advance to our audio technicians) or live keyboard (in advance arrangement with our pianist/organist, Bil Shappell). We are always looking for talented musicians willing to share their gifts for the Lord!
 
 
In addition to our choral/vocal ensembles, we are interested in forming an Instrumental Ensemble – preferably a chamber orchestra – in the very near future. We are looking for talented orchestral musicians in any section (strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion) to get us started. Supplemental parts are also available currently for many of our choir anthems – particularly violin, cello, flute, clarinet and trumpet. We hope to have an organizational event sometime within the coming year to visit with potential instrumentalists and plan out an inaugural season. Interested instrumentalists may reach music director Chris Robinson anytime: crobinson@aldersgate.com.
