Music at Foothills

If you enjoy singing or ringing handbells, Foothills has a choir to fit your schedule, background and interests.  Contact our Music Director, Fred Cummins, for more information at  If you want to know more about Church School Music and Elementary Choir, contact Kristin Burns at

The Chancel Choir sings a variety of styles, including classics by Bach, Mozart and Mendelssohn, gospel, bluegrass, and praise tunes, generally on the 1st and 3rd Sundays of the month. Most singers have some musical experience, but not all. You don’t need to be able to read music. Rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m.

Music schedule for adult choirs.

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 4th Sunday of the month. Check the music schedule for rehearsal times.

The more-relaxed Summer Choir is for people anyone who enjoys singing but especially 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 a.m. Sunday morning.

Handbell Choir meets each Wednesday evening at 6 pm for rehearsal and music fellowship.  The bells ring in worship service once a month.  Special concerts are periodically scheduled. Enjoy the opportunity to learn from the very best under the guidance of Gretchen Rauch, our Handbell Choir Director.  Contact Music Director, Fred Cummins, if interested in joining.

Children’s Program Music is an important part of our school year program.    Director Kristin Burns leads the kids in songs that complement the church school curriculum.   The children sing for the congregation on Palm Sunday and in the Christmas pageant.

Elementary Choir is for all kids in grades K through 5 who enjoy singing. Rehearsals are on Sundays from 11:15 to 11:45 AM in the Choir Room, from the last week of August through mid-May.  Director Kristin Burns teaches beginning music reading and singing skills through a variety of songs, games, and exercises.  No reading ability or prior musical experience is necessary to join.  Each year the Elementary Choir sings for the congregation three times and gives a short concert at a senior care facility, all decked out in their beautiful blue robes.
