Music Ministry

With gratitude in your heart, sing psalms, hymns and spiritual songs to God. And do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him. - Colossians 3:16

COVID-19 Procedures for Music Ministry 

As we are all in the midst of understanding a "new abnormal", the Music Ministry ensembles of Christ Church will not be meeting in person until further notice.

Do not let this stop you from being a part of the Music Ministry! We have a variety of virtual music performance opportunities available as we navigate through online worship. Explore all the ways to grow in your faith through the Music Ministry of Christ Church Charlotte pages for Adult Ensembles and Children & Youth!

Organ Recital with Assistant Director of Music & Organist, Jerrick Cavagnaro

In Octobr of 2020, Assistant Director of Music & Organist, Jerrick Cavagnaro, performed a beautiful and imaginative organ recital from the nave of Christ Church. Included is this recital was music by Dutch composer, Ad Wammes, Spanish Composer, Juan Bautista Cabanilles, American composers, Paul Mortilla and Florence B. Price, and, the magnificent German baroque composer, Johann Sebastian Bach. From tender to fantastical, Jerrick’s colorful programming and registration style use Christ Church’s Gabriel Kney organ to its fullest. 

Please enjoy this recorded recital that has been previously broadcasted through Christ Church Charlotte. 

Songs to Pray By

Our talented and creative music team has curated a playlist of music to inspire and center you for prayer -- both in quiet reflection and joyful praise. Ben Outen, Director of Music, has selected choral music that spans centuries, styles, and liturgical themes. Shea Watts, Associate Director of Contemporary and Family Worship, has compiled a variety of contemplative and uplifting songs from popular worship bands. We invite you to use this playlist in your own prayer practices, individually or with your family. Listen on Spotify »
