The Adult Music Programs
We have a wide variety of opportunities to offer you here at Knox. Our instrumental and choral music groups enjoy being together in community and offering up the gifts God has given us as a testimony of our love for Him. We are truly blessed by the talents God has placed at Knox and we invite you to be a part of this vibrant musical celebration of His gifts.
For anyone who would like to sing with a traditional choir. We do a wide variety of music that appeals to all age ranges. The Chancel Choir sings every Sunday from Labor Day – Father’s Day at the 11:05am service and rehearses on Weds. nights from 6:30 – 7:30 pm. No audition necessary. Just come and praise God with us!
Christmas and Easter Musical Choir
For all ages. The Chancel Choir provides the foundation for this choir. The great thing about this is that if you do not have time to commit to the every Sunday and Wednesday times, you can be a part of this choir and still have a great musical experience. The rehearsals usually begin around 2 months ahead of the event and are generally just the first 30 minutes of the Weds night rehearsal (6:30 – 7pm or so). As we approach the time of the presentation, the rehearsal time does get extended and there is a dress rehearsal. No audition necessary. We combine all of our talented musicians with the drama team to provide God honoring events that are both entertaining and spiritually uplifting. These Musicals are open to the public and free of charge as a gift to the community.
The 2017 Easter Musical, Because He Lives, will be performed April 9th, Palm Sunday at both services.
Anyone is invited to join us in preparing and performing this musical. Rehearsals are at Wednesday
nights 7 pm (2nd half of Chancel choir) beginning in Feb.
The Praise Teams lead worship at the 9am service on Sunday mornings. The different teams consist of a band made up of guitars, bass, drums, piano and synthesizer and are joined by a team of vocalists of 3-5 singers. Rehearsals are on Sundays at 3:30 pm and Thursdays at 7:30pm the week prior to singing. We have four different Praise Teams. 3 Adult teams and one youth team so we have a different group for each Sunday of the month. If you enjoy worshipping through Contemporary music by singing or playing an instrument, consider joining a Worship Praise Team.
We have a full 5 octave of Handbells and 3 octaves of Choir Chimes. The Handbell Choir rehearses on Wednesday
nights from 7:30pm – 8:30pm and we play for worship about 6 times per year. Some instrumental music background is helpful when ringing bells.
For ages high school and older. The orchestra is generally used for the big events and practices on Sunday afternoons leading up to a musical. They play for the Easter Musical, Christmas Musical and Christmas Eve and the music is often challenging and very rewarding.
