Schantz Pipe Organ
Music is an integral part of the worship life of Christ Church, for music is a precious gift from God, inspiring us in our praise, prayer, and meditation. Through music we are drawn closer to each other and closer to God.
Led primarily by our Schantz pipe organ (the largest pipe organ in Nevada), our first choir is the entire congregation, singing “hymns, psalms, and spiritual songs.” Our traditional choir, the Choir of Christ Church, sings for the 11:00 am service each Sunday, as well as for other special services, September through May. New singers are always welcome. No audition is required. Music reading ability is helpful but not mandatory. The choir sings a variety of musical styles, including contemporary composers (such as John Rutter and Craig Courtney), spirituals and songs from the gospel music tradition, and classical music. The choir is led by Church Musician Amy Smith, who also serves as organist.
Christ Church also hosts a series of fine musical concerts, usually one per month between September and May.
If you have any questions about singing in the choir or about any other aspect of our music ministry, please contact the church office (702-735-7655).
Our Latino congregation also has a vital music ministry, serving at Spanish masses at 9:00 am and 1:00 pm each Sunday. Any :interested singers/instrumentalists may contact Carlos Garcia through the church office.
