We are called to GATHER as the Body of Christ for worship and community so that we may be people who are grounded in our relationship with our Creator, with humankind, and with all of creation (Acts 2.42).

You are “chord-ially” invited to Benson Memorial’s Music Ministry Welcome Rally on Saturday, September 25, at 1:00 p.m. in the courtyard. All singers and instrumentalists are welcome, whether you have experience or have never sung before. This will be a great opportunity to gather together in community to talk about how you can be a part of the music ministry at Benson Memorial and meet Anthony Roncolato, the new interim music director and organist.


Anthony is very excited to meet any instrumentalist who wishes to participate in the music ministry, and has a lot of experience working with beginner singers and choirs. While completing his undergraduate program at Penn State, Anthony coached solo vocalists in the Musical Theatre department and worked to build choral skills and confidence in the University Choir under the guidance of a new conductor. After graduation, he taught many adult solo voice students and led an adult choir in creating a virtual choir performance for a Christmas Vespers program. He looks forward to meeting new singers, existing choir members, and all instrumentalists to rebuild the music ministry at Benson Memorial.


Please join us in the courtyard at the Music Ministry Welcome Rally on Saturday, September 25, for a brief get-together, after which there will be an opportunity for any interested members to move indoors to the sanctuary for a quick, socially-distanced, welcoming sing of favorite hymns. We hope to see you there!
