Sharon Center UMC offers many opportunities for you to be involved in music. For our worship service, we offer a chancel choir. The chancel choir rehearses Thursday evenings from 7pm-8:30pm, mid- August to the end of May. Our choir performs a Christmas Cantata, goes caroling at nursing homes, provides a Good Friday Tenebrae Service, and sings for many other special occasions. We have a great time of fellowship and worship every week we rehearse! Also available is a chance to offer special music for our summer services beginning mid-June to the end of August. Do you sing? Play an instrument? This may be the opportunity for you to become involved! During the summer months we practice to provide a concert for the Sharon Music in the Park Summer Series. This year’s concert is yet to be announced. If You would like to get involved in the adult music program or present special music at the church, please contact the music director, Millie Frambaugh.
