Choir

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 the challenge is part of the fun! We are a welcoming group that prioritizes listening and a team-oriented approach to make the best music we can together. Anyone who loves to sing 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.

Repertoire Highlights

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 2019-20 season, we will present Handel's Messiah (Part One) on December 1, and highlight the music of David Willcocks to celebrate his 100th birthday. 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:
