Music at St. Luke’s Lutheran

 “In contrast to Christian traditions which, on the one hand, emphasize on

ly congregational singing, or, on the other, only sophisticated art music, the Lutheran tradition has from its beginning encouraged the reciprocal interaction of simple congregational song and art music of the most sophisticated kind. The result is an environment in which congregations, musicians, and composers all contribute to a vibrant worship life.”

Statement on Worship and Music
by the Association of Lutheran Church Musicians, 2003


The Choir is comprised of volunteer voices, provides leadership for the 10:30 a.m. service on Sunday mornings and Holy Days as announced. The repertoire includes a generous amount of American music, as well as music from all parts of the world. In any given week, the choirs may sing a Gregorian chant from the earliest centuries of the Church, a Renaissance motet, a Bach cantata reflecting the best of the Lutheran choral tradition, English anthems from the Victorian and Edwardian eras, and modern music composed during recent years and up to the present day. Weekly rehearsals are held in the choir room at 7:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings from September through May.


The Handbell Choir rings regularly in worship, and rehearses in the music room at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday evenings from September through May. Opportunities exist to explore solo and small ensemble ringing for those looking for additional challenges that involve advanced techniques and multiple bells.

You are welcome to join the Choir and/or the Handbell Choir. Let the Music Director know of your desire.
