Nine of our younger church members make up our string orchestra. Their repertoire consists of hymns and choruses arranged by our music director, Laura Ferguson.
Each month, the orchestra performs once at the Salem Manor in the Woods at 2:30pm and once at our own church at 4:00pm, typically on the 2nd and 3rd Sundays respectively. (The specific performance dates each month are posted in our Upcoming Events.) These performances are always open to the public, and we’d love to see you there!
Note: our monthly service at Salem Manor in the Woods has been temporarily cancelled due to COVID-19 safety precautions.
Most of our orchestra members have taken music lessons since they were very young, and some travel as far as St. Louis each week to study with members of the St. Louis Symphony. All have dedicated countless hours to learn their instrument, and their wish is to transform these hours into beautiful music that will help you worship our Heavenly Father.
