Music as Ministry - A Living Tradition

The Bruton Parish music program is blessed with a strong musical heritage that honors the centuries-old tradition of Anglican music and explores the rich offerings of today.
Bruton has musical ensembles for all ages that provide support to our liturgy. We also host more than 120 concerts throughout the year. Our Candlelight Concert series ministers to our community as well as visitors  from around the nation and the globe. These nationally recognized programs attract musicians from across the country who seek to perform in our sanctuary. 
The music program is under the direction of Rebecca Davy, Director of Music and Organist, and Dr. JanEl Will, Organist and Choir Director. We invite you to explore the many opportunities for children, youth, and adults to become involved in the life of our parish through music.   Soli Deo Gloria
