Traditionally, our choirs take a hiatus for part of the summer. Vocal solos and duets and instrumental music provide music for worship, in addition to organ and other keyboard music. In these uncertain times, uncertain when we will again gather for worship on Sunday mornings, we will be using small ensembles for music in worship in the immediate future. Our staff singers will participate as quartets (men only one Sunday, women only one Sunday, SATB quartets on other Sundays). This will give us four singers each Sunday, a number that will adhere to physical distancing guidelines. This alternation of men and women and quartets necessitates the addition of one staff singer, while remaining within budget. When it is safe and comfortable to gather again for worship, the Covenant Choir will begin rehearsals and will return to Sunday worship.
- The Covenant Choir has prepared a virtual choir performance of Hymn (from A New Creation), composed by René Clausen. Set me as a seal upon your heart, as a seal upon your arm; for love is strong as death. (Song of Solomon 8:6). We share this as a few moments of beauty and calm. Click here to watch

Kids for the Kingdom
The music portion of W.O.W. has continued through weekly videos and Zooms with Jen Brown-Murphy, Director of Children’s Ministry, and Sarah Murner, Director of Kids for the Kingdom. We hope to make music together again once it is safe to meet in person.
Our Carillon Handbell Choir will also return to rehearsals and prepare for ringing in worship. Covenant and Carillon Choir members are anxious to begin making music together again. But, we have no date at this time for rehearsals to begin.
Donna Phillips, Director of Handbell Choir
