First Lutheran has a rich and inspirational range of ensembles forming the backbone of our music ministry. Along with traditional worship service participation, our ensembles participate in such events as the Longmont Handbell Festival, Ryssby Candlelight Advent services, and Christmas caroling for the non-ambulatory. From vocal choirs, solo and ensemble opportunities, handbell choirs, and holiday brass ensembles, there are opportunities for all to participate or enjoy.
