The Chancel Choir is the adult choral ensemble of the church. The choir sings at the 10:00 am service on Sundays, and rehearses every Wednesday evening from 7:00-8:30 pm, September to June. They also sing on Christmas Eve, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and both Sunday services on Thanksgiving Sunday, Christmas Sunday, Jazz Sunday, Palm Sunday and Easter. Soloists from the ranks of the choir offer their individual gifts of special music at the 8:30 am service.
The repertoire of the choir includes varied music of all styles and time periods, including spirituals, contemporary and traditional music. Fundamentals of good vocal production and choral singing are taught and reinforced in rehearsal. The choir enjoys a spirit-led and spirit-filled atmosphere of good humor and mutual encouragement in the continuing pursuit of musical excellence, all focused on leading the congregation in worship and praise. The choir is open to all men and women, 17 and older; no audition is required. Please contact Minister of Music Allan Conway for more information.
Joyful Voices Choir
The Joyful Voices, a Worship and Praise Choir, is a gathering of singers from Grades 5 through Grade 12. The JVs sing about once a month for a service of worship and rehearse at 9:30 AM every Sunday in the Miller Room. We tell the story of the Good News through our music and welcome all who have a love of singing to join us. This is a wonderful way for young people to get involved in the life of the church while offering their talents through their singing. For more information contact Kathy Nivison, 860 875-1583 or e-mail. Better yet, join us at a rehearsal! Come; let us make a joyful noise – together.
There is nothing sweeter than the sound of little voices singing about Jesus! Our Children's Choir welcomes new children at any time, age 4 through 4th grade. We meet every Sunday at 9:30 in the Christian Education building for a 20-25 minute rehearsal, and we sing during the worship service a few times during the year. During our rehearsals, we have lots of fun singing praise and short gospel songs for children that are easy to learn and remember. When the Children’s Choir sings in church they bring a smile to everyone in the congregation! For more information contact the church office or (860) 875-4160.
