Music

We have wonderful music at Parkway. From the the great canon of western music, the classical sacred repertory, chant, gospel and folk to contemporary songs and global influences, there is something for everyone here. We are blessed to have Barbara Raedeke, accomplished organist and director of the Adult Choir. We enjoy participation from St. Louis Symphony musicians in our congregation and several talented youth and adults. We also periodically bring in local groups to provide special music and/or to lead our informal worship service. Join us and engage in hearing, singing or playing music that inspires, comforts and energizes your faith. [Scroll down to view older posts.]

Choir Call Fall 2014

Share Button

abstract_choirChoir Call
Every year in September when the choir returns to our 9:30 service, I invariably hear many people say how great it is to have them back. I agree! I miss them over the summer, and I think everyone else does too. They provide a very important ministry as they sing hymns and anthems which enrich our understanding of the Scriptures and move us as only music can.

Have you ever thought about joining our ranks? If you enjoy singing, we would love to have you sing with us. The choir is a warm and welcoming group—we work hard, have fun, and enjoy making music together. Our rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from 6:30-8:00 p.m., and we sing for the 9:30 worship service on Sundays, with a warm up at 8:45. Child care is provided on Wednesday evenings and before the service on Sundays. This fall our rehearsals begin on Wednesday, August 27, and we will sing for the 9:30 worship services beginning on Sunday, September 7. We very much need additional singers! If you would like to join us, please contact Barbara Raedeke at BRaedeke@aol.com, or just come to the first rehearsal on August 27. You will be most welcome!

During the summer months when the choir does not sing, we invite members, both adults and youth, to provide special instrumental or vocal music for the 9:30 service. If you would like to share your musical gifts with us over the summer, please speak with Barbara Raedeke or contact her at BRaedeke@aol.com. We are blessed with so many musically talented members here at Parkway, and we hope they will make this important contribution to our worship!
