Music Ministries

Music Ministry

The Chancel Choir provides worship leadership at the 11:00 service every Sunday year round, and offers two major music events annually; a Lessons and Carols service during the Advent Season, and a major work in the spring, both accompanied by members of The Virginia Symphony.  On May 12, 2019, the Choir presented "Music of Mendelssohn", with the cantata, "Hear My Prayer", "Three Sacred Songs," Op. 96 and "I Waited For the Lord".  Past offerings have included Mozart's "Requiem", Handel's "Ode for Saint Cecilia's Day" and Haydn's "Lord Nelson Mass".  Recently, the church commissioned a setting of the "Gloria", by Michael Trotta.

Although this choir sings some advanced music, most of our repertoire is “user friendly”, and we have members of literally all musical abilities, from beginner to professional, and everyone is invited to come and sing with us!

The Larchmont Ringers is open to Youth and Adults, and we have a couple of spots open just for you! Some music reading experience is helpful (not too much….you only have two hands!). They rehearse on Thursday evenings at 7:30.

The Music Ministry at Larchmont is one of the most active and respected of any in Hampton Roads.
