At the center of Follen’s musical life is the Senior Choir, with about 30 members (unauditioned volunteers!) as well as professional soloists and section leaders (Epp Sonin, Caitlin Felsman and Benjamin Sears) and pianist Shaylor Lindsay.
The choir rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 7:30 to 9:00 and provide beautiful anthems and offertories for the majority of Sunday services. Music Director Thomas Stumpf meets with our Parish Minister on a weekly basis to ensure that the music deepens and enriches the spiritual content and meaning of the services.
Music Sundays: Twice a year – usually on the first Sunday in December and on Palm Sunday – services center around the music. On these occasions chamber orchestras are often hired to accompany the choir in such works as the Bach Magnificat and the St. Matthew Passion, Handel’s “Messiah,” Mozart’s Mass in C minor and his Requiem, Beethoven’s “Christ on the Mount of Olives,” Dvorak’s Mass inn D, Britten’s “Ceremony of Carols,” Respighi’s “Laud to the Nativity,” and the Sacred Concerts of Duke Ellington.
