The choir at Christ Church is a dedicated group of people who love to praise and serve God in his church. Music is an important part of our worship, and the choir enriches it by singing a wide variety of hymns and anthems from the Renaissance to the music of today. Whether leading congregational singing or providing the parish a space in time to meditate and pray, music can highlight worship at its most contemplative, joyful, and — hopefully — transformative.
Interested in joining the choir? The literature can at times be challenging, but anyone who loves to sing — and is willing to keep an open mind and learn new skills — will love it here! We rehearse on Wednesday evenings at 7:00 and meet on Sunday mornings at 9:15 to prepare for the 10:15 service.

Each season we choose a featured composer to guide our repertoire. Past featured composers have included mainstays like Bach, Handel, and Mozart, as well as Josef Gabriel Rheinberger and Jean Berger. For the 2018-19 season, we are focusing on English music in preparation for our upcoming residency at St. Alban’s cathedral. In addition to our regular role in lifting up worship each week, we also present choir concerts from time to time. Recent programs have included:
Uplifting: Music for the Spirit (with pianist Lynne Haeseler)
Rheinberger’s Mass for Double Choir (with the choir of Trinity Cathedral)
500 Years On: Music of the English Reformation
Advent Service of Lessons & Carols
Evensongs for St. Alban’s Cathedral, United Kingdom
