Music is a very important part of the worship experience at Federated. If you are interested in singing with any of our many choirs, ringing with our bell choir or dancing with our liturgical dancers, please read on.

Federated Brass & Bell Street Band
The Federated Brass are an ad hoc ensemble, typically a brass quartet or quintet, made up of trumpets, trombone, horn, and tuba in multiple combinations. Often they partner with the Alive360 Band to become the Bell Street Band, a Dixieland ensemble. Instrumentalists that want to participate should contact Chris Ludwa at firstname.lastname@example.org for an audition.
This band plays at various times throughout the church year as needed, adding percussion, bass, drums, piano and other elements to programming to enhance the sense of energy and style. Instrumentalists who want to participate should contact Chris Ludwa at email@example.com for an audition.
