“I Will Praise The Name Of God With A Song. I Will Magnify Him With Thanksgiving.” Psalm 70:30
Our Music Program is coordinated by Dr. Karyn Robbins, Music Director and Organist. She oversees multiple groups and individuals, who offer the gift of music to praise God and for all of us to enjoy and share, together.
There are six choirs at Good Shepherd, which offer many opportunities to praise our Lord in song, both with voice and through playing an instrument. Our choirs typically rehearse and participate in worship services from mid-September through early June.
If you are interested in joining any of the following groups or contributing in another way to the music at Good Shepherd, please contact Karyn by email or call at 585-872-2281.
