At the Episcopal Church of the Advent, joyful sounds range from the singing of pre-school children to the ringing of handbells to the powerful sounds of our Flentrop pipe organ. Music unites us and provides another opportunity for us to glorify God. In addition to enriching our Sunday worship, our music program offers concerts, recitals, Evensongs, and other special services throughout the year.
