The music ministry of Cannon serves to lead and enhance worship. With a variety of ensembles and opportunities for musicians of all levels, all are welcome to join in making a joyful noise for the glory of God.
We offer two adult choirs – the Worship Choir and the Rise & Shine Choir. The Worship Choir provides musical leadership for the 11:00 am worship service each week and rehearses every Wednesday during the program year from 7:30-9:00 pm. The Rise & Shine Choir sings for the 8:00 am service 4-5 times a year and they rehearse as needed on Sunday mornings from 9:00-9:15 am.
The adult Worship Band is the primary musical leadership for the 9:30 am service. They consists of a rotation of singers, guitar players, bass players, drummers, and keyboardists. They rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7:00-9:00 pm.
The Orchestra and Cannon Covenant Ringers (handbells) are our two exclusively instrumental ensembles. Both ensembles enhance worship with their melodious sounds 5-6 times per year. The orchestra rehearses on Wednesdays from 6:30-7:25 pm. The Cannon Covenant Ringers rehearse on Sunday afternoons – (TIME TBD) for 2017-2018. Some music reading ability is preferred for both ensembles. Youth and Adults are invited to play with both ensembles.
We have a fully graded children’s and youth choir program, offering choirs with age-appropriate music education and faith formation for children and youth ages 3-18. These choirs sing regularly throughout the year at both the 9:30 and 11:00 am services. All of our children’s and youth choirs rehearse on Wednesday, as an integral element of our Wednesday Night Live program. In addition, the youth choir typically goes on a week-long tour each year.
