To Know Christ and to Make Him Known

Music at Good Shepherd


One will find significant opportunities to participate in all aspects of music within our parish, whether it be singing, playing, composing, arranging, or simply listening.  Although many styles are represented, an emphasis is placed on the classical repertoire and the Episcopal Hymnal.
For an intimate congregation such as ours, we are fortunate to have an abundance of musical talent.  Our dedicated choir practices dilligently and tackles challenging pieces. On a given Sunday, parishioners might even hear members playing the organ, piano, or violin.  We even have special services that feature our in-house bluegrass group on banjo, mandolin, and the like!
We also have a small group of bell ringers, who play at various times during the year.
Please consider finding out for yourself what music is like at Good Shepherd.  We’re certain you will discover appropriate musical settings that inspire the soul.
Contact our Music Director, Andy Shelden, for any information about choir, performing at a service, or any music-related questions.
And to learn more, please visit: The OrganChoir, Bell Choir, and Blue Grass Band.

“Music plays a particularly important role in the spiritual nourishment of any church, and Good Shepherd is no exception.” A. Boelzner, (former Music Director)
