United Methodist Church of Red Bank Music Ministry

The United Methodist Church of Red Bank has a long history of providing wonderful music for our Sunday morning worship services and for the community at large. We are blessed to have an Austrian-built Hradetzky organ, which was installed in 1975 by the Gerhard Hradetzky Oregelbau. For specifications of the organ, click here.
 
Our Director of Music Ministries is Evan Courtney, who hails from the great state of Wyoming, but has lived here in New Jersey since 2015. Evan leads our congregation as organist and directs the Sanctuary and Handbell Choirs, Wesley Singers, and oversees the Joy Choir, along with coordinating other special music throughout the year, including the Service of Lessons and Carols in December.

Each week in July, we hold a Summer Concert Series, which features local musicians of all kinds. Specific information is posted here on our website as that time of year approaches.
During the summer months choir is open to all who wish to sing on Sunday mornings. This is a great opportunity to give our choir a try.
Sanctuary Choir

The Sanctuary Choir is a dedicated and talented group of singers, who sing every week at the 10:00 a.m. service from September to June. They rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., and warm up before services on Sundays at 9:15 a.m. Membership is open to adults, ages 18 and up. Music reading ability is helpful but not strictly required. Special music programs with small ensembles or soloists generally perform during the months of July and August. New members are always welcome, and anyone interested in joining is encouraged to contact Evan Courtney, or through the church office, at (732) 747-0446.
