The Salem Chamber Orchestra was formed in January of 2016, the chamber orchestra has played for the 10:45 am traditional worship service at Salem United Methodist Church every week with the exception of Communion Sundays (the first Sunday each month).
It is our belief and conviction that great music, regardless of style, speaks to people; it moves them! The Sunday morning 10:45 am traditional worship service at Salem will continue to feature Salem’s outstanding Chancel Choir, Moeller organ, and vibrant congregational singing of the great hymns of the Church but now offers Salem a richer experience with the chamber orchestra collaborating with guests artists from the St. Louis Symphony, Jazz at the Bistro, Opera Theatre of St. Louis, the Muny, and more. The Salem Chamber Orchestra is directed by Stephen Morton. A schedule of community concert dates will be released soon.
