Organ and Piano
Our music director, Corinne Adkins, weaves both organ and piano music into our worship services to lead the congregation, small groups, and soloists in song.

Additionally, the choir sings at the 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. Christmas Eve services. The choir rehearses weekly on Tuesday evenings, 7:30 to 9:00 p.m., and Sunday mornings, 9:30 a.m. to 10:15 a.m., September through May. Part-time choir members are welcome.

The bells perform in services to enhance hymns, anthems, psalms and liturgy. The Bell Choir performs at both services on Easter, Reformation and Christmas Eve services. Additionally, the Bell Choir performs at two to three other services and participates in the North Hills Handbell Festival. The Bell Choir rehearses weekly on Tuesday evenings, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., September through May. Part-time members are welcome!
The Children’s Choir rehearses during Sunday School from 9:15 to 9:30 a.m. and sings the third Sunday of each month at the 10:30 a.m. service, September through May. During Advent, children present the annual Christmas Pageant at the 10:30 a.m. service.
Started in 2006, the Special Music Fund allows professional musicians to perform at and enhance Good Shepherd’s worship services. Any donation amount can be made for future services, and some members have designated specific dates to honor loved ones with their donation. In the past, performers have played the violin, viola, flute, oboe, trumpet, and guitar, and vocalists have also performed. To make a donation toward the Special Music Fund, contact our Music Director, Corinne Adkins (412-963-9494 ext. 305).
