The Chancel Choir sings a variety of music styles, including classics by Bach, Mozart, and Mendelssohn, gospel, bluegrass, and praise tunes, generally on the first and third Sundays of the month. Most singers have some musical experience, but not all – you don’t need to be able to read music to sing with us. Rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m.
The Chamber Choir is a smaller, more-advanced group that sings mostly Renaissance anthems with a sprinkling of gospel. Singers should be able to read music reasonably well. The Chamber Choir sings on the fourth Sunday of the month. Check the music schedule for adult choirs for rehearsal times.
The more-relaxed Summer Choir is for anyone who enjoys singing, and is especially for those who are too busy to sing during the year. No mid-week rehearsals – we learn each Sunday’s anthem that morning. Easy music and no robes! Meets during the summer in the Sanctuary at 9:15 Sunday morning.
Hand-bell Choir meets each Wednesday evening at 6 p.m. for rehearsal and music fellowship. The bells ring in worship service once a month. Enjoy the opportunity to learn from the very best under the guidance of Gretchen Rauch, our Handbell Choir Director.
Children’s Program Music is an important part of our school year program. Director Kristin Burns leads the children and youth in songs that complement the program curriculum. The children and youth sing for the congregation on Palm Sunday and in the Christmas pageant.
Elementary Choir is for kids in kindergarten and up who enjoy singing. Director Kristin Burns teaches music reading and singing skills through a variety of songs, games, and exercises. Rehearsal and performance material is carefully selected to provide a well-rounded repertoire which promotes the Elementary Choir’s goals of learning, fun, and sharing the joy of singing together within our Christian community. The choir sings for the congregation three times a year, all decked out in beautiful blue robes.
Elementary Choir rehearses on Sundays from 11:15 to 11:45 a.m. in the Choir Room, September through May. No reading ability or prior musical experience is necessary to join. Tell your friends and neighbors: Elementary Choir is open to all! For information, please contact the church office at [email protected].
