Fall and Advent Music Schedule 2016


Music Ministry

Coraopolis United Methodist has an extremely active music ministry under the leadership of Dr. Alastair Stout. 


The music program consists of four main groups:

  • The Herman L. Scharpf Memorial Choir (Chancel Choir; for ages 14 and older)
  • The Handbell Choir (4 octaves of Schulmerick bells; for ages 14 and older)
  • The Mary Kay Kennedy Chorale
  • The Robert E. Harper Men's Chorus

The choir program runs from the second week in September through the second week of June.  In addition, the Chancel Choir sings informally on the last Sunday of each month during the summer, a good opportunity for trying it out!

Added music is provided by instrumentalists, soloists and small groups.

Worship songs, choral responses and hymns are also a very important and integral part of the service.

At both Christmas and Easter, the Chancel Choir presents a cantata, often incorporating percussion and other instruments.

The church has a fine two Manuel, 28 rank, Austin pipe organ and a magnificent Boston grand piano.

Throughout the year, Coraopolis United Methodist Church hosts many other musical events.  Some evening programs form our "light music nights," celebrating the lighter styles of both sacred and secular music.

During Lent, the church hosts a recital series which features both local musicians and national/international performers.  Dr. Stout also presents concerts at venues in the Pittsburgh area and around the world.

The choirs regularly participate in community activities, often at local senior citizen residences and hospitals.  In 2005, the Chancel Choir sang in Pittsburgh's Heinz Hall and more recently collaborated with both the North Pittsburgh Philharmonic and Pittsburgh Pops Youth Orchestra.
