Music ministry looks very different right now during the COVID-19 pandemic, but we are still finding ways to make a joyful noise for the Lord!! Our musical groups are finding ways to produce recordings for worship services that can include many folks while being produced in safe, responsible ways. These songs are included in weekly worship services and afterwards are available for replay on YouTube.

If you sing, play an instrument, or enjoy making music in any way, we would love for your to join our music ministry.  Please reach out to Music Director Kevin Quick (kevin@highlandumc.org) or if you are particularly interested in our contemporary service praise band contact Rev. Janet Baucom (janet@highlandumc.org).

Highland Choir

The Highland Choir provides music each week for the 11:00 traditional service, performing a variety of styles ranging from spirituals to classical masterworks, sometimes with guest orchestral musicians. We rehearsed at 7:30 PM every Thursday evening.

Connection Praise Band

Our Praise Band leads music at our 8:45 AM contemporary service, The Connection, in Bradley Hall. They rehearse at 7:30 PM on Wednesday nights year-round. Interested? Contact Rev. Janet Baucom (janet@highlandumc.org)


Our HUMRingers handbell choir plays five and a half octaves of Malmark handbells and five octaves of Malmark handchimes, regularly offering their gifts about once a month in our worship services September - May.

Highland Orchestra

Formerly known as the Highland Winds, this ensemble of youth and adults combines brass, woodwinds, and strings and provides instrumental music approximately five times a year, sometimes accompanying singing groups. Some instrumentalists also play each Sunday morning along with the hymns, when worshiping in person.
