Three select groups are available for performers wishing to share their musical talents:
The Chancel Choir
The Monumental Ringers
The Chancel Choir includes high school students through senior adults and rehearses Thursdays 7:30 - 9:00 p.m. They sing for the 11 a.m. service each week and present two major choral concerts each season. Special activities include musicals, dramas, social affairs and outside engagements.
The Monumental Ringers - Adult Handbell choir is a program in transition. The church is currently trying to redefine the program.
Tapestry is a community daytime handbell quartet sponsored by Monumental, enjoys sharing their ministry, musical talents, and love for the Lord. Formed in July 2001, Tapestry presented their first concert in December 2001, and has become quite popular, giving numerous concerts in southeastern Virginia. The ensemble is the recipient of the 2003 Ruth Morse Wilson Handbell Award from the National Federation of Music Clubs. Tapestry, like the different fabrics and types of threads, reflects a great variety of talents, interests, and music, and blend their gifts together to form an interwoven texture of music to glorify God. Members of the ensemble are: Lynn Dash, Ann Morgan, Lucy Rankin, and Marjorie Setnicky. Go to the Tapestry link to see their concert schedule and support their special ministry.
The Noontime Mini-Concert Series is presented the fourth Monday of each month (September-May). This series features area artists in a thirty minute concert followed by a light lunch ($5.00). The concert is free and open to the public.
