"All Saints music is joyous by design, God's presence in our most worthwhile doing as a faithful community -- worship radiating into all of life." - from a choir member
The All Saints' Choir, led Music Director Arlene Long, is highly regarded as one of our great treasures. The choir and their music are certainly a strong and vital part our worship at the later Sunday service and during other special services and concerts throughout the year. Choir rehearsal is on Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. and there is an open invitation to any who wish to join them.
Each choir member brings different gifts to choir - each person is a gift, each person is important, and our director works to bring them all together, like pieces of a puzzle, for the best picture. In rehearsal and in services, Arlene and the choir members make a real effort to give attention to the guidance of the Spirit, moment by moment. They discuss from time to time how that feels, what it requires of each one in terms of setting aside individual ideas, even while keeping their knowledge and skills of music. They allow themselves to experience whatever they're experiencing personally at that moment, AND to recognize their part in the larger picture. Creating music becomes the vehicle for practicing the spiritual life.
