Music is integral to the liturgy of our worship service and our lives. It is one of the primary ways in which we worship, love and serve our Lord Jesus Christ.
All Saints' Adult Choir
The Adult Choir is the heart of the music ministry at All Saints' Loveland. The Adult Choir, composed of 21 volunteer women and men, sings 35-40 anthems each year at the 10:15 a.m. Sunday Service (mid-August through mid-June). Drawing from the ancient but ever-growing body of traditional Anglican church music, we strive to make music at the highest level while having fun doing it. The Adult Choir rehearses from 7:00-8:30 PM on most Wednesdays, and on Sundays from 9:00-9:25 AM. For more information about joining the Adult Choir, please contact Danielle Crisman at email@example.com.
Special music, including organ voluntaries, violin solos, and others, complete our worship experience. Our Adult Choir presents a yearly cantata during one 10:15 a.m. service each year, and has collaborated with the St. John's (Boulder) Choir to perform selected works from Benjamin Britten's A Ceremony of Carols with harp accompaniment by harpist Hillary Schefter. In addition, the choir provides music for special services throughout the year, including but not limited to Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, the Easter Vigil, Thanksgiving Eve, and Christmas Eve.
