Music

“Sing to the Lord a new song!”  — Isaiah 42:10

Music is a very important component to the worship service at Christ Church, setting the mood and tone of the service.  Our upcoming musical selections during services, as well as our special music events, are listed on the sidebar.

Our Adult Choir leads the congregation in song at the 10:00 a.m. service each Sunday during the program year.  Under the leadership of Mary Jodice, Minister of Music, the Choir supports the congregation each week in hymn singing as well as anthems pertaining to scripture.  Our Choir sings a variety of musical styles ranging from chanting to Classical to contemporary. All are welcome to join.

Adult Choir

Adult Choir, under the direction of Minister of Music, Mary Jodice,  is an ensemble made up of mostly volunteers, with four professional section leaders (soprano, alto, tenor and bass.)  During the program year, we rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.  in the Sanctuary.  We learn new music in an atmosphere of spirituality and good-hearted fun.  No auditions are required … just the desire to sing with the ensemble.  We extend an open invitation to anyone at anytime throughout the year.  Some singers are with the group for a particular season, due to travel or family obligations.  We welcome you with open arms and a packet of music.  Learn more about becoming part of the music ministry at Christ Church.

High school students who sing in the choir receive community service credits toward graduation requirements.

For further information, please reach out Minister of Music by calling 781-444-1469 or e-mailing.

Instrumentalists

Parishioners who play an instrument are invited to play at Christ Church’s services.  We have several already who play.  Again, there are no auditions, just a willingness to share your gift of music with others. Please reach out Minister of Music  by calling 781-444-1469 or e-mailing.
