Making a Joyful Noise!

We understand music can speak in ways that words can’t touch us, and we’re blessed with an inspiring musical life at Federated.  Our pipe organ and grand piano are kept in excellent condition, and by all accounts are beautiful instruments to play and listen to.

Our choir is open to all who are interested. There is much variety in the choice of music, and though usually accompanied by piano or organ, local musicians often add their gifts to enhance worship.  And we recently received the gift of handbells which are certainly adding to our joyful noise making!

Music Camp, which is heading into its third year, is a springtime weekend of music for children and adults open to the whole community at our Community House.  Federated and local musicians come together to offer workshops during the day, and a cafe style concert in the evening.  An all community dinner is usually a part of this too.

The Joyful Noise Cafe Music series happens every few months throughout the year in our sanctuary.  It involves musicians in concert and local visual artists coming together for an evening around a particular theme.  It’s an entertaining time as well as a chance to lift up social issues and experiences we have in common.
