Music

The Church is ALIVE with the Sound of Music!

 The Farmingdale United Methodist Church Chancel (Adult) Choir sings every Sunday, presenting a wonderful assortment of Anthems. The variety of musical styles includes everything from Classical to contemporary, from Traditional to Jazz/Gospel. The choir and worship service hymns are accompanied by our 20-rank Austin pipe organ and Yamaha piano or synthesizer. Accompanying Anthems and Hymns occasionally are trumpet, flute, violin or percussion. Opportunities abound for instrumentalists and singers alike. During Advent and Eastertide, the Chancel Choir presents full-length cantatas. Rehearsals are Thursdays at 8 P.M.

The Wesley Choir is for children, ages 9-14. Rehearsals are after Sunday Worship Service. The Wesley Choir is featured at Christmas, Easter and on other special days. The children also sing about once a month in church during the school year. There are opportunities for young musicians to accompany the Wesley Choir and to play violin, flute, piano (etc.) solos during the Summer months.

The Cherub Choir is for the youngest school-age children in the congregation, ages 4-9. They rehearse each Sunday morning immediately after Sunday School, at the same time as coffee hour, and perform once a month during the school year. The Cherub Choir is directed by Jennifer Lee with the assistance of Gail Cavallo.

The Handbell Choir is a fun and unique way to put your note reading skills to work. Our 11 ringers cover 30 octaves with our set of Schul-Merick bells. The Handbell Choir generally plays two anthems monthly. The pieces are of moderate difficulty and use many different ringing techniques. There are also opportunities for more advanced ringers to play solos or form ensembles. Rehearsals are Thursdays at 7 P.M. Beginners are welcome.

Farmingdale United Methodist Church also periodically presents special concerts for the congregation and the Farmingdale Community, some of which are fundraisers or benefits for particular outreach concerns.
