Music Ministry

Under the leadership of Rev. David Robertson, the music program at High River United Church is a vital part of congregational life.  

 

Choirs / Bands

 
High River United Church Choir

Our Choir leads music on Sunday mornings as well as sharing inspiring anthems. Two concerts a year round out their activities. They welcome anyone who loves to sing. You don’t have to read music or have experience singing in a choir.  Youth are also very welcome to join the choir. 

 

They practice Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 pm in the chapel.

 

Family Choir

When there is interest, a choir formed of all generations gathers to practice after church and sing for an upcoming worship.

 

Worship Band

We welcome musicians to join in our weekly music to accompany hymns. Currently we regularly have a drummer, a bass guitarist, a flautist and violins join in the leading of worship. We also welcome young musicians to play during the collection of the offering or as a prelude to worship.

                                

New participants, including instrumentalists, are always welcome. 

  

Highwood Ringers Hand-bell Choir

The Highwood Ringers began practicing and playing with a small group of dedicated ringers in September 2002. We have 3 octaves of bells, which comprise about 25 bells of graduated sizes.

 

In the past, as well as playing at church for Advent, Christmas, Easter and the annual Spring concert at church, we have played at Spruce Meadows, the Friendship Centre, the Latter Day Saints Church nativity display, the High River Hospital 2nd floor and have even made several road trips.

 

We are a non-denominational choir, with ringers, both men and women, from several local churches. It is not necessary to know how to read music to join in playing the hand bells.

 

Contact the church office for more information.

 

The Gift of Music Society Concert series

The High River Gift of Music Society is committed to providing excellent classical music in the community of High River. We believe that classical music is great music that everyone can enjoy. An ‘unstuffy’ concert series, you will discover the beauty and power of music in a relaxed setting with friends. To learn more about the music, pre-concert chats set the scene for the music you will hear. Committed to supporting and inspiring local music students, the series also offers master-classes and complimentary tickets to all registered music students in High River and surrounding area.  

 

The Concerts take place at High River United Church, 123 Macleod Trail, High River, Alberta
