“Next to the Word of God, the noble art of music is the greatest treasure in the world.”— Martin Luther

Music at Covenant Lutheran deeply enhances the worship experience of all who gather here. Voices and instruments blend in a variety of musical styles expressing God’s Word in ways that speak to our hearts. Whether you are involved in making music, or listening to music, you will find something here for you.

Bell Choir

The Covenant Bell Choir will start rehearsals on September 7th from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm in the sanctuary. You do not need to have any musical ability because we will teach you everything you need to know! Ages ninth grade and up are welcome. Please contact Meghann if you are interested or have questions:
meghann_foug@yahoo.com or 608.332.4491.

There’s No Reason Not to Join the Senior Choir

According to an article I recently read online, two of the most common reasons people give for not joining a church choir are “I’m scared to audition” and “I can’t be there every week.”

At Covenant, there’s no need to be frightened of Senior Choir auditions, because there aren’t any. If you can find your way to the music room (next door to the columbarium), you’re in.

As for attendance, come when you can, and sign out on the calendar when you need to be gone. We rehearse far enough ahead that you won’t feel lost after missing a couple of Sundays. (As one church musician quoted in the article said, “It’s important to have a sense of commitment, but allowances are made for real life.”)

Regular rehearsals resume at 8:00 am on Sunday, September 11; watch your bulletin (or call me at 873-9426) for news of a possible “mini-rehearsal” before that date. We take our responsibility to help lead worship seriously, but we don’t take ourselves seriously. Please plan to join us for fun, fellowship, free coffee, the opportunity to sing a wide variety of sacred music and the occasional chocolate chip cookie.
