Music Program At St. Bartholomew’s Richmond

Music program at St Bartholomew's Episcopal Church Richmond VAMusic Program At St. Bartholomew’s Richmond

Under the direction of our Music Director, M. Wayne Hare, CAGO our parish enjoys a healthy variety of sacred music.

We blend music from classical composers, contemporary musicians, and the wide variety of music from several Episcopal hymnals to create a vibrant worship experience for the congregation.  We are able to combine both traditional organ accompanied music, with more contemporary music accompanied by piano, orchestra and acoustic guitars.

St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church Choir

On October 1, 2017 we dedicated our new Viscount Chorum 60 organ. This instrument will support our blended worship services in ways we can’t even imagine today – and will continue to support our program for years to come.  Our organ integrates a Roland synthesizer with thousands of instrumental voices to augment the traditional pipe organ sounds from Europe and the Anglican tradition.
