Music

Please consider becoming a member of our musical family! The exploration and nurturing of our faith through music is an integral part of our spiritual life at Westminster. Our ensembles are led by our Director of Music Ministries, Dr. Benjamin Hutchens.

If you are interested in joining one of our ensembles, Ben is interested in hearing from you! While previous experience is helpful, Ben firmly believes that everyone can learn to be a capable musician. He is passionate about helping musicians of all levels achieve greater confidence and ability. Contact Ben at [email protected].


Westminster Presents

In addition to the adult choir’s offerings on Sunday mornings, we will have a few Friday events to showcase the substantial gifts of our own musicians and provide a space for guest musicians. One of those will be live organ accompaniment as we watch the silent movie The Phantom of the Opera! Our hope is that the audience on Fridays will include a host of familiar Westminster faces and also provide an opportunity for those outside our congregation a chance to enjoy our hospitality, beautiful sanctuary, and, of course, the music we create.
