Central Lutheran Church, Ministry of Music
Music ministry has been one of Central’s strengths since the moving to the present site; the outstanding acoustic in the sanctuary provides a sympathetic and beautiful setting for music ministry. Our musical instruments, the Brombaugh organ installed in 1976, and the Steinway grand piano (1986) along with sixty handbells (1985-present), have given further focus to the program through the years.
Central has four choirs: the Central Chorale — our adult fifty-voice singing choir, the Alleluia Choir for grades 5 through 9; the Children’s Choir for grades 1 through 4, and the Central Handbell Choir for high school students and adults. The musical calendar at Central each year is a busy one and includes two sacred choral masterpieces presented by the Chorale with soloists and orchestra, The Procession of Lessons and Carols for Advent, Easter and Christmas services, along with regular Sunday schedules. The Music Ministry program is headed by Dr. ElRay Stewart-Cook, our Organist/Choirmaster.
