Each group will have limited number of rehearsals during the month they are active. On the Sunday’s the group is assigned to sing they will sing both the 9:00 and 10:30 am worship services. Meeting at 8:00 am.
The choir wears robes most Sundays. There will be certain Sundays that the choir will not wear robes and other instructions will be given on what to wear. Choir members are assigned a black folder for their music. We do ask that no scents, perfumes or scented lotions at rehearsal or Sunday mornings.
Each group has a limited amount of rehearsal time. In the event a person is sick, there is inclement weather or you are traveling the choir rehearsals will be offered on line. Rehearsal notes are also available for every piece. This includes where to breathe, directors observations of the piece and other details.
We offer special seating for those that do not feel comfortable in the loft. Plenty of space on the side near the organ console. If you need a place to learn the music but need more space for health, mental or other reasons we offer you this option.
Christmas Festival Choir
Groups A, B and C are encouraged to do the Festival Choir rehearsals. The Festival Choir is open to all singers both in and outside of the church that would like to join us for a special Christmas Concert: Through the Eyes of Dickens. The Festival Choir and groups are asked to sing for the worship services in December including Christmas Eve.
There is a Monday Morning Newsletter for all singers. Each week we also offer a shorter e-mail on Thursday mornings talking about the upcoming weekend.
Rehearsals will be offered livestream on Wednesday evenings or you may watch rehearsals at a later date on YouTube.
