Under the leadership of Kantor Mark Schultz, the music program at Emmanuel encourages and enables the song of the Church and the proclamation of the Gospel.

Emmanuel’s Vocal Choir regularly performs an important liturgical function at Emmanuel, learning and singing liturgy, hymns and anthems. Soloists and smaller ensembles also participate in the proclamation in the Divine Service liturgy. Choir practices every Thursday at 7:30 p.m. and requires some music competence to join and a willingness to learn and improve to our Lord’s glory and his peoples’ praise of Jesus.

Our Handbell Choir beautifies our services, especially during the high festivals, with special music performed on our beautiful set of handbells. This group practices weekly, Thursday evenings from 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. One need not be an accomplished musician to join. The skills needed to be in this choir are easily learned and great sounding music results to God’s praise!

Instrumentalists playing brass & woodwind instruments as well as timpani also participate in many of the services.

Please speak with Kantor Schultz if you are interested in being involved with the music program.
