At St. Boniface, we are fortunate to have a talented group of professional and volunteer musicians enhancing our services!
The Chancel Choir leads hymns and supports congregational singing at the Sunday morning services. We also sing anthems from a variety of styles and traditions, including Classical, Gospel, Folk, and even a little Broadway from time to time. We are a diverse group of fourteen individuals who come together every Wednesday evening and Sunday morning to sing and rejoice, and we’re always looking for new members!
We are equally blessed to have a core of talented instrumentalists in our church community who often share their talents with us! Don’t be surprised if you hear a saxophone solo, a trombone prelude, or a bagpipe postlude at a St. Boniface service (we also regularly feature cello, recorder, flute, trumpet, and oboe). Our patriotic brass service on the Sunday closest to the 4th of July is a special favorite – don’t miss it!
We also offer many music special events throughout the year, both during and outside Sunday morning services. Our service of Lessons & Carols on the fourth Sunday of Advent prepares us for the joy of the Christmas season, while our Maundy Thursday Taizé service is an opportunity to reflect on the solemnity of Holy Week. In 2015, the choir and Sunday School worked together to present the musical 100% Chance of Rain, and we closed the church year on June 7 with a Music Celebration festival service, featuring six choir anthems, flute, recorder, trombone, saxophone, cello, and bagpipes.
It’s a great time to be a musician at St. Boniface, and we hope you’ll help us make a joyful noise!
