In addition to hymns and anthems sung at regular worship services, Music at St. Andrew's strives to continue our rich musical heritage through concert series, special music services, and other concerts.
Join us for six free performances, each approximately 45 minutes long, on select Sundays at 7:15 pm.
The goal of these programs is to draw you into a state of contemplation, and step out of the hurried pace of modern life to be opened to God anew through beauty. We invite you to then stay for our chanted service of Compline that immediately follows each program.
Program Two: John Rutter's Requiem
Sunday, November 2, 2014 at 7:15 pm
Performed by the St. Andrew's Adult Choir
For the solemnity of All Souls' Day, the St. Andrew's Choir and chamber orchestra, directed by Deborah Friauff, will perform John Rutter's Requiem.
All Music for Meditation programs are free and open to the public
For nearly two millennia, the Church has been the western world's chief patron of music. From the single line of Gregorian chant, to full scale works for orchestra and chorus, composers and musicians have offered prase to God in ways that words alone cannot express. Special music services give us the opportunity to join in those praises that goes beyond our weekly worship.
Peter Hallock's O Antiphons
Sunday, November 30, 2014
As part of the 10:00 am Holy Eucharist
We will celebrate the First Sunday of Advent in a special way beginning with the Liturgy of the Word at the 10:00 am service and journeying through the beautiful service of the O Antiphons, with special choral responses by Peter Hallock.
Music at St. Andrew's is proud to support the artistic endeavors of local civic ensembles and organizations by offering our sanctuary as performance space. Please note that the Parish Office does not have any concert or ticket information.
The following ensembles currently have concerts scheduled at St. Andrew's in 2014-15:
- The Academy of Early Music
- The Vocal Arts Ensemble
- The Ann Arbor Grail Singers
Please visit the ensembles website for concert or ticket information!
Have your concert or recital at St. Andrew's!
Interested in using St. Andrew's as a venue for your upcoming concert or recital? Although St. Andrew's sanctuary is always available for rent, we will consider waiving the rental fee for recitalists if the musician is willing to give back to the St. Andrew's community by participating in a liturgy or concert (known as a reciprocal event). This arrangement is made with the approval of Dr. Deborah Friauff, our Director of Music.
Fees of $25 per hour are still incurred due to the necessity of hiring a building monitor to open and close the building as well as handle set up. Piano tuning may also be needed. Paperwork must be completed with the Parish Administrator, Kathy McPherson.
