At First United Methodist Church of Santa Rosa, we offer a wide range of musical opportunities, and you are sure to find one or more that you would want to participate in. Our music offerings include:
- Chancel Choir - a 40-45 voice choir that sings a wide range of musical styles. Our season goes from Labor Day to Father's Day. We sing at our Montgomery Campus during the 9:30 am worship, and once a month at the 11:00 am service. We rehearse every Thursday from 7:30 - 9:00 pm in the McMullin Room and Sanctuary. All experienced singers are welcome to join. No audition is required, but an interview with the director is requested.
Our Chancel Choir has gone on tour in 2001, 2005, 2008, and 2013. See photos from our 2013 tour of Italy. Hear our Farewell Home Concert at St Vincent's Church in Petaluma, CA.
- Praise Team - an 8-10 person singing and instrumental band who lead worship with contemporary praise music. We lead worship at our Stony Point Campus every Sunday at 11:00 am. We rehearse every Thursday from 6:30 - 8:30 pm in the Stony Point Worship Center. Praise band experience is needed. Contact Doug Albertson if you are interested.
- Solo and Ensemble Music - performed by vocalists and instrumentalists by arrangement. We enjoy hearing you share your special musical talents. Contact Doug Albertson if you are interested
During the year, in addition to our music offerings at our worship services, we offer a variety of concerts and special events. We perform a Christmas concert, and we feature special Easter music, as well as offer other special singing and instrumental events on occasison. Numerous community and school groups use our Montgomery Sanctuary, as it provides a great setting, both visually and acoustically.
We provide a wide variety of musical experiences at both of our campuses. We welcome your questions, and invite you to join us and share your musical gifts with our congregation.
