Our Min­istry of Music plays an inte­gral part in enhanc­ing spir­i­tu­al life at Sharon-Hope. Through diverse musi­cal events — con­gre­ga­tion­al and choir singing, spe­cial music pre­sen­ta­tions, can­tatas, wed­dings and funer­als — we pray, praise, rejoice, grieve and cel­e­brate.   Each Sun­day, our Senior Choir under the direc­tion of our Music Direc­tor, Don­na Cor­bett, leads the con­gre­ga­tion in hymns. New singers of any age from teenage up are warm­ly wel­comed in our choir. The only cri­te­ria is a desire to share in the joy of music. Addi­tion­al inter­est­ed singers, soloists and nar­ra­tors join to form the Cel­e­bra­tion Choir for our annu­al Christ­mas and East­er Can­tatas. We dream of cre­at­ing a Junior Choir.   Our musi­cal style is an appeal­ing mix of sacred and fun. We blend old favourites and new­er mod­ern hymns, so toe-tap­ping and hand-clap­ping and smiles often add to the accom­pa­ni­ment pro­vid­ed by our baby grand piano, organ and fea­tured instru­men­tal­ists.   The amaz­ing acoustics of the spe­cial­ly designed sanc­tu­ary as well as the beau­ti­ful con­cert baby grand piano make it a per­fect loca­tion for wed­dings, spe­cial events, con­certs and recitals by groups of all sizes and styles. We are a sought-after venue with­in the wider music com­mu­ni­ty and wel­come inquiries about rental of the space.   Our Senior Choir prac­tices in the sanc­tu­ary each Thurs­day at 7:30 p.m. from Sep­tem­ber to June. If you are inter­est­ed in becom­ing a part of this group or would like to share in our Music Min­istry in some oth­er way, please leave a mes­sage at the office (905–478-2231) for our Music Direc­tor.   See our Event Cal­en­dar and Spe­cial Events page for details about spe­cial music offer­ings.
