Music has historically been a very important component of worship at SCC. We focus on the congregational singing of traditional hymns and anthems song by the church choir lead by Will Minton and accompanied by our Organist, Chris King, who plays on our historic George Hutchings pipe organ. The music the choir sing is traditional Protestant choral literature, based on Scripture, hymn tunes, classical works, spirituals and folk melodies in varied styles from throughout history.
In additional to the anthems, hymns and responses the Choir sings during Sunday worship services, the choir participates each year in other presentations such as the Annual Community Benefit Concert which our Music Committee sponsors to benefit the local Food Bank and Open Door Soup Kitchen, and the Fall Foliage Vesper Service at Colebrook’s Church in the Wildwood. In addition to making music together, the Senior Choir enjoys other opportunities for fellowship throughout the year at pot-luck dinners, hymn-sings and social events.
The Choir meets each Sunday morning at 8:15 AM to rehearse. There is no rehearsal on evenings during the week, and new members are always welcome. If you are interested in joining the Senior Choir, please call the Church Office at (860) 379-4766, or speak to Choir Director Will Minton at church any Sunday morning.
