The Music Ministry at St. Nektarios Church in Charlotte serves the parish community by providing musical leadership at all principal church services. The parish has a full-time Director of Music Ministry, Fr. Seraphim Dedes.
At St. Nektarios, the music for worship is ecclesiastical Byzantine chant, adapted for the Church in America. We aspire to meet the challenge set by our Bishop, Metropolitan Alexios of Atlanta, to be a part of the process as our music evolves into a peculiarly American Orthodox music.
The music of worship is entirely vocal. At the principal services, two choirs, of male and female voices respectively, sing antiphonally. The language used is primarily Modern English, with some selections in Ecclesiastical Greek, Slavonic, and Arabic.
