|Music is important at Emanuel. From our bell choir, to our vocal choir, to the music we sing together in worship, music brings us together and moves our hearts closer to God. It’s something lots of people here enjoy.
Our music director is Nancy M. Kennedy.
In addition to providing beautiful music to enhance our worship Nancy also directs the choir. New voices are always welcome in the choir, formal musical training is not necessary. Our only requirement is a love of singing and the desire to be of service to Emanuel. It is a very rewarding experience to be part of leading the congregation in musical prayer. For many the choir can be an avenue for making a real connection with others in the congregation. Choir members work together as a team and come to rely on one another both musically and spiritually.
We rehearse only on Sunday mornings from 9:15-10:15 before worship service. Our goal is to sing the anthem every Sunday at the 10:30 service but that is not always possible. When it isn’t we have a rotating group of choir members who sing solo instead. So if you have a song in your heart, please see Nancy after service on Sunday to learn how you can share your voice with our community.
We also welcome instrumentalists to join our worship service. Whatever instrument you play Nancy would be happy to work with you to share your gifts with the congregation, the more the merrier! Diversity is the spice of life!

Nancy has a master’s degree in music education and over 25 years experience directing choirs in public schools and churches. Besides her work here at Emanuel she also teaches music at Pilgrim High School in Warwick,RI
