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.
Music for Meditation will return in October!
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.
St. Andrew's is in the process of raising $1.8 million to support the building and installation of a new 'tracker' organ to replace our aging electro-pneumatic organ. This new instrument will be built by Richards, Fowkes & Co., and is designed to last for generations to come.
The new organ will directly benefit the spiritual life of the St. Andrew's congregation and will also be an additional resource and gift to the cultural life of the Ann Arbor community in which St. Andrew's has long played an active role. ABOUT THE ORGAN PROJECT
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.
