The Sanctuary Choir sings for 9:30 and 11:00 a.m. worship, September through May; and 11:00 worship June through August. Rehearsals are held on Thursdays from 7:30 - 9:00 p.m. in the Choir Room (S300). High school students are welcomed to participate with adults in this choir. Anyone is welcome to join and no auditions are required, however, the ability to match pitch is necessary and some music reading skill is desirable. The Sanctuary Choir does not hold midweek rehearsals during the month of July.
The choir sings a major work (usually with orchestra) twice a year* (Lent and Advent), and for Evensong (first Sunday in November). To prepare for the major works, rehearsals are extended to two hours in length eight weeks prior to each presentation. There are also occasional Saturday rehearsals. The choir does not rehearse on the Thursdays immediately following Christmas and Easter; however, it leads worship every Sunday, with the exception of Youth Sunday. Contact: Karl Zinsmeister, Director of Music for more information.
