RCB’s music department is proud to offer opportunities for anyone to be involved with music.
We have six choirs ranging in age from 4 to 95, handbell choirs for 5th grade-adult, and a world-class concert series both on our own and in partnership with Concordia Conservatory. Hymns, diverse choral repertoire – from medieval to modern – and use of our fabulous Austin Organ, Op. 2804 define our worship style.
For more information about all of these options, please continue to explore the music section of this website!
