Music Ministry

Old South is blessed with a vibrant and active music ministry.  We encourage active participation from those who wish to sing, play, or listen.


Our chancel choir sings during worship on most Sundays, September through May.  The Choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings at 6:45 and Sunday mornings at 9:00.

If you are interested in joining the choir, please email the church office.


Our Bell Choir is active during the Advent/Christmas season as well as Lent/Easter.  They also occasionally play during other times as well.  The Bell Choir rehearses during Advent and Lent, on Wednesday evenings at 5:45.

If you are interested in joining the bell choir, please email the church office.


During the summer months (June, July, August and early September), we eagerly encourage the sharing of gifts and talents for music in a variety of ways.  We have soloists, duets, and even the occasional quartet– singers, instrumentalists, or both.  Occasionally, we have “alternative” choirs, like a ukulele choir.  You may email the church office for more information.


Once or twice a year, we have an Old South Ensemble play during worship.  This ensemble invites everyone and anyone who wishes to play.  The range of ages usually starts around middle school and goes up to . . .  somewhere around retirement.  The ensemble includes string and band instruments, and usually involves easy arrangements.  All are welcome!  Please contact the church office if you are interested in learning about the next time the Old South Ensemble plans to play.
