Worship through Music, Song and Dance

The First Episcopal District provides an opportunity for gifted persons in the areas of music vocals, instrumentals, dance and theatrical arts to join our District choirs and ensembles that are structured to nurture and train aspiring artist while embracing the gifts of the more seasoned performers and ministers as we collectively minister throughout the First Episcopal District.  Music and Liturgical Ministries are essential to the Worship experiences of our Church.
