"Bach gave us God's word. Mozart gave us God's
laughter. Beethoven gave us God's fire. God gave us music that we might
pray without words."
Choral Music Program
Choral music plays a vital role in every Divine service in the New
Apostolic church. It is the striving of every congregation to
have a joyful group of choir members to help express praise to our
God and Heavenly Father in every service. Several areas also have
Concert, Senior, Youth and/or Children's choirs which sing at various
special services or concerts.
Instrumental Music Program
Instrumental music is developing in all areas in the New
Apostolic church in Canada. Highlighting this is our Southern
Ontario Orchestra (SOO). Made up of players from across
Southern Ontario, our group gets together normally on a monthly basis
for practices and performs at 2-3 events per year.
There are currently openings in the SOO for string, bassoon &
oboe players. There are also opportunities to play
instruments in congregations in smaller groups and even recorder
programs for children!
