Friends of Music
Garrison Keillor, who is an Episcopalian, once wrote a piece about our fondness for music, which began like this:
“We make fun of Episcopalians for their blandness, their excessive calm, their fear of giving offense, their lack of speed and also for their secret fondness for macaroni and cheese. But nobody sings like them.”
With his dry Midwestern humor, Keillor makes the point that music is a central element of Episcopal worship.
The Friends of Music is an organization of parishioners who seek to improve upon our already wondrous music program, under the direction of Dr. Ray Urwin, and to explore the many varieties of music that can enhance worship.
Over the years Friends of Music have invited a variety of musicians to perform various styles of music at St. Michael and All Angels: Gospel, Russian a capella, jazz, rock, folk, and much more.
This is all made possible by your support. Please consider joining Friends of Music!
