“The aim and final reason of all music is none else but the glory of God” – J. S. Bach
Aquia Episcopal Church offers a rich and diverse Music Ministry led by dedicated volunteers who enrich our worship services with their musical gifts.
In keeping with our historic church, music is selected from the diverse range of Episcopal and Anglican tradition and is organ-led every Sunday at the 10:00 AM service, at Evensong held at 5:00 PM on the second Sunday of each month and other special services throughout the year. Choral music is offered from the Sunday after Labor Day through Trinity Sunday.
We are always looking forward to meeting more musicians and interested parties are encouraged to contact our Director of Music at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We currently offer two Choral Ensembles: the Gallery Choir open to adults and high-school age youth, and the Aquia Choristers, our dedicated Children’s Choir open to children between 3rd and 8th grade.
The Gallery Choir - Our choral ensembles open to adults & high-school age youth that rehearses on Thursday nights, 7:00 -9:00 PM.
The Aquia Choristers - Our dedicated youth Choir that performs either at the 9:00 or 11:15 service monthly and rehearses between 3:00 – 4:00 on Sunday afternoons.
Instrumentalists - We are actively seeking skilled orchestral musicians who would like to play at the 9:00 or 11:15 services either on a regular or occasional basis.
Concerts & Special Services
Concerts - We are interested in partnering with local performing ensembles and choirs to begin a Concert series in the 2017-2018 year.
Evensong & Special Services - We hold several special choral-led services including the Advent Lessons & Carols service and a monthly Choral Evensong. We encourage musicians from outside the church to join our choir for these special occasions.
