Music

Music is an important part of our Sunday services, and also part of our joy. We are blessed with a fantastic volunteer choir, an amazing organ, and even some special young voices from time to time.

Choir-DSC04034-sizeAscension Adult Choir

The Ascension Adult Choir is a group of volunteer singers who love to sing and are willing to learn! They rehearse in the Nave each week on Wednesday evenings from 7:15pm until 8:30pm. They help to provide worship leadership at the10:15am service and for other services as determined throughout the year. The choir sings a wide variety of great choral music ranging from ancient plainchant to classic masterpieces to modern works and commissioned anthems.

organThe Martin Pasi Organ, Opus 16

All components of the instrument were built in Martin Pasi’s shop in Roy, Washington. Working with a small group of fine craftsmen, the shop builds one organ at a time, crafted by hand from natural materials using reliable and historical organ building methods. Our organ has two manuals and a pedal keyboard. The freestanding casework is contracted of old-growth Douglas fir, the metal pipes are a 97% lead-tin alloy, and the wooden pipes are from Tulip Tree. These and many other similar refinements make this a distinguished instrument of lasting tonal and visual beauty, exempify an elegance and inherent integrity characteristic of the greatest traditions of the organ builder’s art – Soli Deo Gloria!
