Music at Rowner Parish Church.   
















We are very fortunate to have a robed choir to help lead our Sunday worship here. They are also available to sing at weddings or at other venues as required.
 
The Choir meets for practices on Wednesdays during term time at 6pm in Church.  We prefer choristers to be at least 9 years old when they join, but we can make exceptions. 


For more information on joining the Choir, or if you would like the choir to be involved with your wedding or other event contact our Organist who will be pleased to help you. 
The choir is affiliated to the Royal School of Church Music and is trained using the RSCM 'Voice for Life' scheme, choristers are awarded medals with coloured ribbons to mark their achievement at each level.  There are also further opportunities to gain awards at bronze, silver, and Gold after taking an external examination.  New members are always welcome and there are many opportunities for willing organists/pianists.
   
   
 
 
In April 2012 the parish replaced the existing electronic organ with a state of the art digital 3-manual instrument built by Wyvern Organs Ltd.  We have music at all of our major services as well as additional carol services and special occasions.  

Our Organist Alison Warne is available either after the Parish Mass on Sundays or by making contact with the parish office; should you need to talk about music for weddings, funerals, or if you are interested in joining the choir or learning the piano or organ.
 
We have a Yamaha grand piano, which is also used in accompaniment, concerts and for teaching.
