Our Music Ministry

Mission Statement

Music is an integral part of our liturgical worship together as a community of believers. Raising our voices in song unifies and deepens our communal prayer. Music is a treasured gift that we share with God and one another. Our mission is to provide a safe and welcoming environment for all to offer their musical gifts in worship. The music ministry at Grace in the Desert offers a wide variety of experiences for parishioners of all ages and musical abilities. We always welcome new members to our musical ensembles. Whether you are interested in singing or as an instrumentalist we invite you to explore one of the many musical opportunities at Grace in the Desert Episcopal Church. If you have any questions please contact the Minister of Music.


Adult Choir

Grace in the Desert Adult ChoirThe Adult Choir welcomes all singers to join in leading our music during the 10:30 a.m. service from Sunday after Labor Day till Trinity Sunday. Rehearsals are held on Thursdays from 7:00 p.m. till 8:30 p.m. Our music ranges from Anglican chant to African American spirituals. The adult choir also performs masterworks by classical and contemporary composers throughout the year accompanied by various instrumentalists from the parish and the Las Vegas community. In addition to leading our music on Sunday mornings the Adult Choir also sings for special services and events throughout the liturgical year. All members of Grace in the Desert Episcopal are welcome to join the choir. Older youth are also encouraged to join the Adult Choir. For more information contact the Minister of Music.


Bare Bones & Friends

The music group at the Saturday 5:00 p.m. contemporary service,Bare Bones & Friends also known as “Bare Bones & Friends”, sings a wide variety of traditional hymns, contemporary praise & worship songs, gospel, as well as re-worked blues & standards & several original songs. Occasionally throughout the year, the group also performs at various outside functions, as well as additional services at Grace, such as weddings, memorial services, and the annual Blessing of the Animals. A couple years ago, we performed at the Nevada Diocesan Convention, and in recent months, have played for some private parties in the Las Vegas valley. Sometimes, we’ll also participate in services with the Youth Choir & Adult Choir. We invite you to join us at the 5:00 p.m. Saturday contemporary service. For more information contact Paul Biddle.

All children are welcome to join this choir. The Children's Choir learn proper vocal technique, and music reading skills based upon the approaches of Zoltan Kodaly and Carl Orff. The children perform music by traditional and contemporary composers, and sing approximately once a month during the 10:30 a.m. Sunday Choral Eucharist from September to May.
