Our Music Programs at Gloria Dei
Gloria Dei Lutheran Church is blessed to have musicians on staff to enrich our worship with a wide range of music. Taylor Tracy is our Music Director, with Dr. Calvin Permenter and Dr. Tracey Johnson as our principal accompanists. We have two different active choirs at Gloria Dei: our Chancel Choir and our Handbell Choir. Beyond providing special music throughout the year, the regular musical groups have two special weekends each year where they are the primary preachers in worship — the Christmas Cantata weekend in mid-December and Music Weekend in early June— and the Sunday School kids lead a grand celebration of Christmas with their Christmas program.
If you can read music, we would be happy to teach you how to use handbells. Our handbell choir rehearses Sunday mornings at 7:45 am between services. Performances occur on Sunday mornings at 9:00am services and will be announced by the Music Director.
Whether you know how to read music or haven’t learned how to (yet), we welcome you to join our chancel choir. Our rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings at 7:15 pm. Performances occur on Sunday mornings at the 9:00am services and will be announced by the Music Director.
