♪ CHANCEL CHOIR Rehearses weekly on Thursdays from 7:00-8:30 PM
Choir sings at the 10:15 AM service, September to June.
♪ FESTIVAL CHOIR Rehearses seasonally on Thursdays from 7:00-8:30 PM
Periodically those who are not able to commit to the chancel choir for the entire year will join for special occasions. These occasions generally include Christmas, Easter, and our annual “Concert for a Summer Holiday” near the 4th of July. This larger choir also is encouraged to perform when we host the community Thanksgiving service.
♪ SOLO & ENSEMBLE Vocalists, woodwind, brass, string and percussion instrumentalists occasionally present musical offerings to enhance our praise of Jesus.
♪ YOUTH IN MUSIC In addition to these choirs and ensembles, we include the children of our congregation from time to time, both in singing specially chosen and prepared pieces, and by having our instrumental students join with the adults of our congregation who play various orchestral instruments in an ensemble for preludes or the leading of congregational singing.
