Music and the Arts at All Saints

From Our Director of Music:

Music is a dynamic, transforming force that edified and enhances our worship week after week.  Music is nourishment for our spiritual lives.  Through music, God's word to us in worship is amplified, our fellowship is enlivened, and our learning is underscored.  Whether we listen to an instrumental voluntary, an anthem sung by one of our choirs, chant a Psalm, sing from our hymnals, or tap our foot to jazz at Saturday@5, music is a vehicle that brings us into a closer relationship with the Divine.
 
We invite you to experience the many musical opportunities offered here at All Saints.  Music at All Saints - Hilton Head Island strives to embrace the music of the Episcopal Church in the United States while maintaining its Anglican musical heritage.  Our concert series, Arts at All Saints,  features an array of sacred music concerts and special choral services each year.  I hope that you will partake in these many wonderful music opportunities.

 
Musically yours,
Jason A. Wright, DMA
