Ministry of Music

The Church in Aurora Ministry of Music is dedicated to providing music for our congregation that will inspire, uplift and bring God’s word to all listeners.  The music used for our worship spans a broad range of styles and composers.  It represents a mixture of classical, traditional and contemporary compositions.

Our six choirs – four vocal and two handbell  – provide a musical opportunity to share in the joy of music for all ages. Rehearsals are held weekly September through May.

  • Chancel Choir – Sally McGill, Minister of Music; Anne Ramsay, Organist
  • B.A.S.I.C. Choir – Grades 7-12 – Sally McGill
  • Choralier Choir – Grades 3-6 – Barb Brookhart
  • Littlest Choir – Grades K-2 – Barb Brookhart

Our worship experience each Sunday is greatly enhanced by a Schantz pipe organ and/or a piano, additional instruments and soloists.  Special musical events occur throughout the year including a traditional Christmas Vespers Service consisting of all six choirs and a Palm Sunday Cantata presented by the Chancel Choir and an instrumental ensemble.

The Church in Aurora music staff brings much experience and leadership to the music ministry.  Their expertise not only helps maintain, but also to enhance the standard and quality of the sacred music for which the church is known.

“In His service and to His glory”. . . these words are the foundation of the Ministry of Music at The Church in Aurora.  The dedication of our staff and the many volunteer participants represents a commitment born of devotion to our church and to our Lord.
