Music at Rosedale United

Our music program is led by longtime Music Director Wayne Strongman, with support of a substantial and skilled choir, and Associate Organist Christine Hanson.

The choir offers works from a full repertoire of sacred music, classics, contemporary, gospel and spirituals, as well as works from popular culture that offer profound messages to people of faith.

In addition to a beautifully restored 1912 three manual Casavant pipe organ and a grand piano, we draw on various musicians with guitar, flute, trumpet, percussion

We are pleased to have several composers and songwriters in our congregation, and often have musical elements commissioned for our various liturgical seasons and events.

For younger people we offer a Youth Band, and a Junior Choir.
