Adult Orchestra

The Resurrection Orchestra performs each Sunday during the 11 am worship service, as well as many other special services and events including one of Kansas City’s best holiday traditions, Christmas at Resurrection. Participating in the orchestra is a great way to meet new people while using your musical talents to serve God, our church, and our community. We are the featured ensemble on the preludes and postludes for the 11am traditional worship service. During the service, we accompany the Resurrection Choir on their choral anthems, as well as the hymns that are sung with the congregation.  


Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings from August through May, from 7 – 8:30 pm in the Leawood Sanctuary.

Interested in joining?

The Resurrection Orchestra includes members and non-members of the church who volunteer their time to support the music ministries of the church. The orchestra is open for all adult musicians, 18 years of age and older, who proficiently play the standard string, woodwind, brass, and percussion instruments found in a symphony orchestra. There is no audition. If you have experience playing one of the instruments previously mentioned and you are looking for an opportunity to share your musical gifts, then please consider joining us! We would love to have you in the Resurrection Orchestra!

Kids' Music & Choirs

Resurrection Kids’ Choir – Rehearsals Begin August 18

Our choir meets from August – April/May. We present two full musicals, one in December and one in the spring. Kids also sing in worship a few times each semester and for special holiday services.

Rehearsals will begin August 18, 2024 and are on Sundays from 10:10 – 11:10 am in B200 for children who are in preschool (age 4, prior to Sept. 1) through 5th grade. If you are attending Resurrection Kids for the 9 am service, please follow the process in your child’s check-in room. A sticker needs to go the CHOIR sheet, giving us permission to bring your child to choir. If they are going to attend Resurrection Kids at 11 am, we will have special instructions when you check-in your child for choir at 10:10, giving us permission to take them to Resurrection Kids. Preschool aged children need to be dropped off and picked up.
