Lord, how good it is for us to be here -- Matthew 17

Music

Philosophy

The Music Ministry of the Church of the Transfiguration exists to enhance and edify the public prayer of the gathered community through combining our God-given gifts of music for His glory.  The Music Ministry consists of generous, willing parishioners who volunteer their musical talents at various liturgies and paraliturgies. Although musical ability is necessary, no audition is required.  To join the  Music Ministry contact Sue Wallace.

 

Requirements

  • Must have enthusiasm, spirit and a reverent sense of the mystery of the liturgy.

  • Must desire to give back to God, the measure of talent He has given you.

  • Must have a "Heart commitment" to the group (meaning that occasional necessary missed rehearsals are a given-especially for the sake of time with one’s family).

Instrumentalists are needed for special occasions.  God has truly blessed Transfiguration with many wonderfully talented musicians. We encourage you to consider offering your God –given talent to Transfiguration’s music ministry.  Oh, by the way, NO audition is required. 

 

Update:

We have been providing music for our liturgies in a virtual fashion, as a join effort between St. Catherine of Sienna and Transfiguration.  There is always room for one more voice and everything is done from the comfort of your home!   We lay down a piano and lead vocal track, send it out to you, you record your voice singing along, and send it back in.  Our miracle workers are volunteer sound engineers, who take all the tracks in, balance everything, and produce a beautiful song (it takes them HOURS and their skills are very much appreciated).  Then the music is loaded onto church laptops, along with the things to be displayed during Mass, and one of our Tech Ministers plays the slides during Mass.  It's a true team effort, but so worth it as Mass would not be the same experience without the beautiful music that surrounds it.  SO - if 'stage fright' or 'morning voice' has kept you from joining the choir, now is the your chance!!!

 

Please take a few minutes to watch the below slide show, with our chorus performing a Sue Wallace original, "Make Visible God's Works".  The slides and the song help illustrate what we do at Transfiguration to Make Visible God's Works.
