Music

Choir

The Chancel Choir sings at all worship services at Washington Farm UMC. We alternate singing at the 9 AM service one week and the 11 AM service the next week and so on from the Sunday following Labor Day, through the end of June. The choir does not sing during the months of July and August, but we do have groups and individuals from the choir who assist in the summer services. Our rehearsals are every Wednesday at 7:30 PM from the Wednesday after Labor Day through the last Weds in the month of June. We normally practice for one hour. All who love music are welcome to join us. It is a wonderful way to praise the Lord and enjoy the company of the choir members.

Cantatas

The Cantata Choir consists of members of the Chancel Choir, in addition to members of our congregation and friends of members who only have time to participate in choir in the singing of the Easter and Christmas Cantatas. We sing the Easter Cantata on Palm Sunday at both services. We sing the Christmas Cantata on the Sunday before Christmas at both services. The Cantata choir begins rehearsing 6 weeks prior to the performance. The Rehearsals follow the 7:30 PM Chancel Choir rehearsals, beginning at 8:15 PM on Wednesday evenings. All are welcome to join us in preparing ourselves, and our congregation and community for Easter and Christmas.

Flute Ensemble

Fun with the flute! The Washington Farm Flute Ensemble welcomes all flute players!

Do you play the flute? Or did you play in high school? Why not get your flute out and come play with the flute choir! The group rehearses most Sundays around noon, enjoying a wide and varied repertoire of music. There are no auditions to play in this welcoming group which includes professionals as well as relative newcomers to the flute—all are invited!

Wind Ensemble

Washington Farm’s Wind Ensemble plays on special occasions during the year. Do you have experience playing a band instrument? If so, Washington Farm’s Wind Ensemble has a place for you! The group plays at various church events and services. The band is a mixed ensemble of people who love making music: some professional musicians, some students, adults who played as students, and others who are relatively new to playing in a band. There is a place for everyone in the Wind Ensemble!  Rehearsals are scheduled periodically throughout the year. Contact Eileen Fraedrich for further information or to find out when the Wind Ensemble is scheduled to play.
