The Music Ministry at Marble, led by Kenneth Dake, has a well-founded reputation for its rich tapestry of offerings: from sacred classics and contemporary spirituals to Shaker and Southern folk hymns, this is music to stir your soul and enlighten your mind. Whether toddler or adult, there's music for everyone at Marble Church.
“God gave us music that we might pray without words.” Nowhere is this truer than here at Marble Collegiate Church. Music is an integral part of Worship in our church, and we are blessed with the joyous and moving sounds of it each Sunday. The music at Marble brings our faith community nearer to God.
The Marble Choir
Our professional choir, leading the congregation in God’s praise through an array of exceptional music each Sunday, September-June. Marble has always been known for its excellence in preaching, but in recent years it has also earned a growing reputation for some of the finest choral music in the country. Having garnered nationwide acclaim, The Marble Choir continues to lead the congregation’s worship through an exceptional and varied repertoire.
Membership is by competitive audition from among the city’s best ensemble singers and professional musicians.

Festival of Voices
The Festival of Voices is looking for motivated volunteer singers who believe passionately in the power of music to shape worship and transform lives. Under the leadership of Kenneth Dake, the Festival of Voices presents a broad range of choral repertoire in Worship each month and is featured in an annual Advent Concert and in the Good Friday liturgy. Wednesday evenings’ high-energy rehearsals leave people feeling inspired and challenged. One half-day retreat provides fun, fellowship, and deeper exploration of inspiring texts and soul-stirring harmony. The nurturing and supportive community of the choir offers a vital spiritual resource and forges lasting relationships with others on the journey.
Rehearsals are held Wednesday evenings. Potential volunteers should be able to read music and commit to regular attendance. Contact Kenneth Dake, for information on how you can become a member of this ministry.
