Our Music Ministry at St. Matthew’s presently has over 100 dedicated singers and instrumentalists. Our main purpose is to praise God joyfully and with a humble spirit. New members are always gladly welcomed. Each choir is like a family of its own, and many lasting friendships have formed within these groups. If you love to sing or play an instrument, consider joining a choir. The ability to read music is helpful, but not required. You don’t need to have a solo quality voice. We need choral participants as well as soloists. If you play an instrument, you should be fairly proficient. Our limited practice times are not conducive to those beginning to learn an instrument.
