Music is an important and vital aspect of worship and community at St. Andrew’s Church, Ottawa. Under the leadership of the Director of Music, Thomas Annand, our worship is enhanced by the regular participation of the Choir and the St. Andrew’s Ringers.
From our original organ in 1874, through careful maintenance and a new installation in 1987, the organ has remained central to our worship in music. Enjoyed each Sunday morning, as well as during frequent concerts and recitals, the Guilbault-Thérien organ is a gift we all enjoy. (A more detailed description is available here.)
The Choir practices weekly throughout the year to lead our worship on Sunday mornings during the 11am services. Concerts also take place throughout the year, at Easter and during the Christmas season.
St. Andrew’s Ringers practice weekly and join our worship a few times a year during the 11am services. Also sharing their music at other churches, the Handbell Choir welcomes new ringers. Speak with the director, Lynn, if you’d like to be a part of this ministry of music.
