Music at Belle Meade is a significant and vibrant component of life in this congregation. Each choir enjoys outstanding camaraderie, a love of the liturgy and a great appreciation for learning fine music as an offering to God. In the same vein, this is a singing congregation. In every service, worshippers participate to the fullest in hymns, psalms, and other responses, imparting a palpable depth and warmth to the liturgy.
If you are interested in joining any of our choirs, or if you wish to join our roster of fine instrumentalists, please contact Nancy Reiser in the Choir Office (Nancy@BellemeadeUMC.org or 615.352.6210)
The Belle Meade Choir provides musical leadership for worship in the 10:30 AM traditional worship service. This choir is comprised of adults with substantial choral experience who meet for weekly rehearsals and sing for the 10:30 AM service each Sunday, as well as special services and other events. Rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7:00 PM, and Sunday mornings at 10:00 AM.
The Belle Canto Handbell Choir rehearses weekly and plays in our services regularly. The church’s handbells are kept in excellent condition and the choir welcomes new members at any time.
The Joyful Noise Children’s Choirs of BMUMC have proven to be a wonderful avenue for new church members to join the congregation. Directed by Lynn Kauffman (K-grade 1) Alana Griffith (grades 2-5) these choirs rehearse on Wednesday evenings from 6:15 to 7:00 PM.
The Youth Choir, for grades 6-12, meets on Sunday afternoons at 5:15 PM as part of the weekly youth program. As with the younger choirs, this choir sings in our morning services regularly.
