Englewood United Methodist Church’s music ministries are a central part of who we are, directed by Fonda Davies.  The Sanctuary Choir is the primary choir for our 11:00 service.  They annually perform Easter and Christmas cantatas which are loved by the community. We also have Voices in Bronze, our handbell choir, a summer choir which includes adults and youth, a First Sunday choir that sings monthly at the 8:00 service, and an annual concert series that showcases local and national talents.  We also have instrumentalist, orchestras, and soloists performing on Sundays and for special services. Rich Church directs Fusion by Fire, our contemporary worship band. This praise team leads the congregation in worship on Sundays at 9:30 and at special events and concerts throughout the year.


Sanctuary Choir

Fonda Davies, Director

The primary worship choir for our 11:00 am worship service. This Choir also prepares and shares Christmas and Easter cantatas, as well as thematic concerts during the Fall and Spring seasons. Rehearsals in the Fall, Winter and Spring seasons are on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. in the Williamson Music Suite. New singers are always welcome!


The Voices in Bronze Handbell Choir

Fonda Davies, Director

The Voices in Bronze Handbell Choir is a group of musicians who enjoy ringing and making music together on a 5 1/2 octave set of Malmark Handbells. The choir also plays a 4 1/2 octave set of Malmark Handchimes, and often combines the two different instruments in a special musical piece. A recent exciting addition is two octaves of Cymbells. They play monthly for worship, Christmas and Easter, and at special concerts during the year. New ringers are always welcome. For information, contact Fonda Davies at the church office at 941.474.5588, Ext. 269.


Summer Choir

Fonda Davies, Director

We would love to have some new voices while many of our northerners are gone for the summer. All rehearsals are on Thursday at 7:00pm in the Williamson Music Suite. During the summer months, the adults are joined by middle and high school age students as they share their music at the 11:00 am worship services. This is a great time to “try out the choir” to see if you would like to be a part of this wonderful group during the ‘season’. Additional voices are always welcome, especially while our ‘snowbirds’ are up north. For information, contact Fonda Davies at the church office at 941.474.5588, ext. 269.


First Sunday Choir

Fonda Davies, Director

This group of volunteers sings the first Sunday of the month, October through June, at the 8:00 a.m. worship service. They gather in the Williamson Music Suite at 7:30 a.m. prior to the service. The anthems usually consist of a familiar hymn. If you like to sing, this is a great opportunity to bring special music to the early service. All are welcome. For information, contact Fonda at the church office at 941.474.5588.

The Team is open by audition to high school age and above. If you have talent in singing, or if you play an instrument and would like to join this group, please contact Rich at 941.474.5588 to audition.
