We invite you to join either …
... the Chancel Choir (Tuesday nights, 7:00-8:30 PM & Sundays, 8:15 worship) or
... the Sanctuary Choir (Thursday nights, 7:30-9:00 PM & Sundays, 9:30 and/or 11:00 worship)
(NOTE: the choirs will combine for two Wednesdays, one Saturday and one Tuesday rehearsal. See detailed schedule below)
During a ten week period from Wednesday, February 8 through Easter Sunday, April 16 you will experience
- the preparation of a larger work—this year’s Lenten Oratorio is the premiere of a new setting of Seven Last Words by Michael John Trotta.
- broader training in vocal production and music reading through work on hymns, anthems, and the oratorio.
- the opportunity to be a member of one of the worship leading choirs for Lent and Easter.
