Our Choirs

PgHead_Music_@016Oct21

We have several adult and children’s choral groups, a rotating handbell choir, a magnificent 1930 Möller pipe organ, a restored 1875 Steinway Grand piano, the Music at the Meetinghouse concert series and much more. You are invited to take part! Please contact our Director of Music Ministry and explore how you may bless others – and yourself – through music.

Adult Choir
Age: High School – Adult
Rehearsals: Thursdays, 7:00pm – 8:30pm

Learn More ...
An interest in singing multiple-part music, this choir rehearses in the Chapel every Thursday night from 7:00-8:30 pm and sings every Sunday. While having the ability to read music is an advantage, it is not a requirement! This choir also participates in special events such as the annual Interfaith Thanksgiving service and the annual Consociation Choir Festival, and they travel to area nursing homes to sing periodically throughout the year.

Treble Choir
Age: Pre-K – 3rd Grade
Rehearsals: Sunday School

Learn More ...

All the children of the church have the opportunity to experience music on Sunday mornings. The Pre-K through 3rd graders (the “Treble Choir”) meet in the basement of the church for the first 10 minutes of Sunday School. This provides a group experience building peer teams and a sense of their church community. They sing in church about once a month.

They will be singing “For the Beauty of the Earth” on Sunday, November 20th! Click below to practice with the accompaniment, and click here for the lyrics!

Spirit Choir
Age: High School – Adult
Rehearsals: Sundays, 11:30am – 11:40am

Learn More ...
The ultimate in flexibility and simplicity! The Spirit Choir meets for only ten minutes every Sunday from 11:30-11:40 am in the Chapel to learn easy yet fun music to sing the following Sunday. Started in the summer of 2013, this choir sings uplifting songs with a special emphasis on spirituals and progressive Christian worship songs. Simply show up as you are able and join in! They sing nearly every week.

Solo Performances

Rehearsals: By Appointment

High school students and adults are encouraged to participate in the music life of the church as their schedules allow!

Handbell Choir
Age: High School – Adult
Rehearsals: Tuesdays, 5:00pm – 6:00pm

The Handbell Choir operates on a 4-week “rotation schedule”, where ringers practice four weeks and play in church the following Sunday. Interested participants may join as many or as few rotations as they wish! No experience is necessary – you simply need to know your right from your left, how to count to four and possess a decent sense of rhythm! Rotation sign-up sheets are posted on the Music bulletin board in Angela Hubley Hall, and they rehearse Tuesday evenings from 5:00-6:00 pm.

Chancel Choir
Age: 4th – 8th Grade
Rehearsals: Sundays, 11:40am – 12:00pm

Interested singers from the 4th-8th grades (the “Chancel Choir”) meet in the Chapel from 11:40-12:00 noon to rehearse more advanced music. They sing in church about once a month and participate in local choral festivals.

WOW Choir
Age: High School – Adult
Rehearsals: Sundays, 9:35am – 9:55am

The church’s “Worship on Wednesday” services, held on the third Wednesday of each month in the Chapel, often include singers who have rehearsed hymns or anthems. This informal group practices at 9:35 for 20 minutes in the basement of the church starting two Sundays before each scheduled WOW service. Interested singers may sing for as many or as few services as they wish! Pianists, guitarists and other instrumentalists are also welcome to participate.
