MUSIC

“Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth. Worship the Lord with gladness: come into His presence with singing.” (Psalm 100)

Our choir is looking for new members! Are you musically inclined? Do you play an instrument or sing? Susan Isherwood, our very accomplished and professional Music Director, would love to meet you! St. Margaret’s choir is more than just a chorus. Our mission is to support worship in the context of the liturgy using traditional and modern styles. We know that music is an important part of worship, and when offered with the spoken word, invites a beautiful spiritual experience.

The choir performs at our weekly Sunday Holy Eucharist service at 9:30 a.m. from mid-September to early June. Appropriate music is presented throughout the year, with special seasonal offerings. In the past, our guitar group has played at Evensong and at Sunday worship several times during the year. The choir has been on hiatus since the beginning of Covid-19, but we are just beginning to rehearse again. Please note that our choir loft is only accessible via stairs.

Our Music Director: Susan Isherwood is an experienced choral director, pianist, organist and teacher. St. Margaret is very blessed to have her. Susan holds a Master of Music degree in Pedagogy and Accompanying from the University of Illinois. She has taught at schools, universities and churches in Connecticut, Illinois, Maine and New York.

An added blessing: Our friendly choir shares a spirit of commitment both to the music ministry and the church body, and does so in a happy and motivated environment. If you are interested in more information, we'd love to meet you any Sunday or at open choir rehearsals!
