Our Music


All music ensembles are suspended until further notice due to COVID19


Recorder Ensemble

Third Saturday of every month at 11:00 am

Our recorder group is open to anyone who has an interest in recorder music and the basic skills of reading music and knowing basic recorder fingerings. We will meet every 3rd Saturday and play in worship every few months.  The playing level is currently advanced-beginner and we generally have 6-7 players covering Soprano, Alto, Tenor and Bass.  Community members are most welcome to join. For more information on our recorder ensemble, email John at jtbsfo@gmail.com.

drums Drum Circle

Third Saturday of every month at 10:00 am

Drum circles are universal. A drum circle is a gathering of people who come together to build community and make spontaneous music. Every person has a natural human-beat, it’s just a matter of letting it come out. Even if you feel you have no rhythm-a drum circle is designed to tap into your inner rhythm and release it. Instruments provided for those who need them.  As with all of our music groups, you do not need to attend ELC to participate.

For more information about our drum circle, contact Darren Hochstedler at dhochstedler@prlc.org

The chime choir is open to anyone who can count to four, has the desire to play (learn to play) chimes, and can commit to regular weekly practices No experience is necessary.  We generally provide special music at both services the 2nd Sunday of the month and at other services  throughout the year.

Third Saturday of every month at 12:00 noon

The Sanctuary Choir leads worship at one or more services a month and at special services throughout the year. We celebrate our heritage but are not necessarily “traditional”.  We enjoy singing a diverse repertoire including spirituals, folk songs, multi-cultural music and contemporary hymn arrangements.  Anyone who can carry a tune is invited to sing.  Reading music is not a requirement. We plan to sing at both the 8:30 and 10:30 services as scheduling permits.
