The Chancel Choir
Conducted by our Music Director, John Finney, the Chancel Choir provides music leadership for our worship services. In addition to hymns, we sing an unusually wide range of repertoire from Palestrina to the best contemporary composers of sacred music. We are often accompanied by professional (and occasionally amateur) instrumentalists, including brass and tympani, especially for festive services. In addition, on Special Music Sundays we usually perform with a small orchestra.
The choir rehearses every Wednesday evening from 8:00-9:30 p.m. from September through May, and sings for worship services September through July. We welcome new members from novices to experienced singers. Although no audition is required, some choral experience and the ability to read music are needed. If you are interested in singing with us, contact us.
THE CHANCEL CHOIR’S ACTIVITIES ARE SUBJECT TO THE PROTOCOLS MADE NECESSARY BY THE COVID PANDEMIC. AS OF FEBRUARY, 2022, THE CHOIR IS REHEARSING AND SINGING FOR WORSHIP SERVICES, MASKED AND DISTANCED. WHEN IN-PERSON MEETINGS ARE NOT POSSIBLE, WE MEET AND REHEARSE BY ZOOM.
