Cantabile Bell choir

St. Paul’s new Director of Children’s Choirs is Julianna Jones.  Mrs. Jones holds an advanced degree in music education and has more than a decade experience in teaching music to lower elementary age children.  She is a lifelong Lutheran and brings energy, creativity, and a deep appreciation of God’s gracious love.  Please welcome the children during worship and extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to Mrs. Jones as she provides direction for the children.

The children’s choirs have been gathering on Tuesday evenings from 6:00-7:30 to sing and ring and play instruments.  Participants in the Cantabile Choir  have been ringing handbells and exploring the Psalter, especially Psalm 23 and 121.  The Cantabile Bells will participate in a Sunday liturgy October 2 at 10:30 a.m.

We began the fall season with Pastor Reep providing leadership during a time of vacancy.  The work was just beginning when Mrs. Jones joined us at St. Paul’s.  She is working with Pastor Reep making a smooth transition for our children.

The Cantabile Bell Choir is made up of students in grades 2-6.  Students as young as 1st grade will be taken if parents feel they can handle a 45 minute rehearsal.  No prior music experience is necessary.  We play some pieces for handbells, Orff instruments, drums and add singing voices.  The children usually perform once a month at the 10:30 a.m. service.

If you have any questions the Cantabile Bell Choir,  please feel free to contact Mrs. Jones at (717) 843-8155.
