The Music program at the Church of the Redeemer is one of its great strengths and is central to our rich liturgical life.
Every Sunday, our choirs perform anthems expressive of the great diversity found in Christian choral literature. Monthly, September through May, the time-honored Anglican tradition of Evensong is performed. During Advent and Lent, midday organ recitals are offered.
Throughout the year, music fills our church and campus with the sounds of rehearsals, concerts, and community recitals from some of the best and most talented instrumentalists, vocalists, ensembles, and orchestras — not only in Sarasota, but throughout the world
The church’s 50-stop Nichols & Simpson pipe organ was installed in the church on September 28, 2003. The massive organ has “so many variations of color,” says Choirmaster/Organist Dr. Ann Stephenson-Moe, “it’s perfectly suited to the works of the greatest composers for organ.” The powerful Nichols & Simpson organ has a console constructed of oak with a burl eucalyptus interior. The pipe shades draw their inspiration from the chapel’s wrought iron screening.
The public is warmly invited to visit the Church of the Redeemer and enjoy our music offerings throughout the year.
