Our Music Ministry

It has been a relaxing, refreshing, and rejuvenating Summer for Faith and me; I hope you enjoyed FCC's Summer Music program this year; and I am now ready and eager to guide the Music Ministry into a new season in our new facilities with new rehearsal techniques and styles. Join a Choir this season (FCC has ensembles for every age and skill level) and discover-perhaps all over again-the joy and satisfaction of singing your faith. After all, the Christian faith is a singing faith!

  • Carol Choir (four-year-olds through second grade) meets in the Music Room at 11:15am on Sundays, beginning Sunday, September 17

The 2017-2018 Fountain Music Series is located elsewhere in this Fountain. Another extremely varied season of musical events and outreach of FCC's Music Ministry, please put these dates on your calendars now, so nothing can come along the last minute to deter your attendance, and plan to continue or raise your level of support of the FMS' mission to "bring to the community the finest of sacred music and performance, pursuing the motto "Excellence in all things, and all things to God's glory."

I joy to report that I have been welcomed to the Board of Directors of the Ridgefield Symphony Orchestra. As I have conducted, over the past 16 years in Fountain Music Series concerts, most of the players in the RSO, I am eager to bring my passionate support, encouragement, and guidance to that esteemed organization. Would you please join me in supporting the RSO's mission to provide the highest level of classical music performance in our community? The RSO, in turn, plans to strongly promote the Fountain Music Series as well. Thank you, RSO, for inviting me, and for this win/win between our two dynamic Series and noble missions.

See you in Choir!

Soli Deo Gloria,
Edwin R. Taylor, Minister of Music/Music Director
