The Cathedral handbell choirs ring not only for worship services and concerts at Boise FUMC, but also for handbell festivals and performances in the greater Boise community and beyond. The handbells are directed by David Johnson and rehearse every Thursday at 5:45 p.m.

A new handbell choir for beginners will be starting soon. This group will rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7:00. More details to come.

Cathedral Orchestra

The Cathedral Orchestra is sustained by community instrumentalists of various age and skill levels. They provide excellent orchestral music for worship and special events in a variety of ways throughout the year: as soloists, small ensembles, and as a full ensemble supporting a soloist or the choirs. The Cathedral Orchestra rehearses on an ad hoc basis prior to scheduled performances.

Cathedral Collective

The Cathedral Collective is comprised of a passionate group of volunteer musicians and vocalists of varying skill levels, ages, and backgrounds. The Collective’s primary responsibility is to provide musical leadership during the 10:00 Sunday worship service in the Emmaus Center. Musicians and vocalists are placed on a rotating schedule and can choose how often they participate. Music ranges from classic hymns to modern worship selections to songs. The primary goal of the Collective is to build community through the shared goal of making soul-lifting music. The Cathedral Collective rehearses on Thursday evenings and is directed by Naki Whittaker.
