Christmas Orchestra — Sign Up Today!

Nov 16, 2021 | Adult Ministries, Featured, Music Ministries, Student Ministries

Exciting News!  The Christmas Orchestra is Back!

This is a great opportunity for musicians in 7th grade and older to share the gift of music with an appreciative audience.  After not being able to hold it last year, because of the pandemic, it is so wonderful to return to this Herndon UMC tradition! 


This year, the Christmas Orchestra will be held in Doe Fellowship Hall to allow for the maximum number of participants and the maximum number of worship attendees with social distancing and masking, if required by the current transmission rates.
Saturday, December 11 from 10 am – noon 
Saturday, December 18 from 4 – 6pm

Worship Service:

Sunday, December 19  with a call time of 8:30 am for the 10 am service


Players are STRONGLY encouraged to attend both rehearsals, and must be able to attend at least one to participate in the group.  Volunteer credit hours may be given for participation (up to 7 hours) if they participate in all rehearsals.


There is an online form to sign up linked below or available at bit.ly/ChristmasO.  This form provides all of the information on rehearsal times, COVID protocols, etc.  Once musicians sign up, they will be added to our Christmas Orchestra group and will then receive email messages from Shannon Wise, Director of Traditional Music.


The mission of Herndon UMC is to serve and share God’s Love in community.


The vision of Herndon UMC is to live the teachings of Jesus so that everyone may know God’s Love and grow in Spirit-filled relationships.
