COVID-19 Update: In-person Chancel Choir is canceled until further notice. However, there are numerous opportunities for solo performances for livestreamed worship services. Duets, trios, etc. comprised of people from the same family or who are otherwise regularly together in the same social “bubble” space may also be a possibility. Also, virtual choir opportunities will be available periodically. To sign up for any of these opportunities, or if you have any questions, contact director Mark Robinson .
The Chancel Choir ministers through music in worship almost every Sunday, from mid August through June. Throughout the year there are additional opportunities for service during special seasons such as Advent, Christmas, Easter, and Thanksgiving, for an occasional funeral, and for ecumenical events such as Habitat for Humanity Musicfest and other inter-church events. Rehearsal is held every Thursday evening at 7:15 p.m. in the FBC sanctuary, and on Sunday mornings, the choir meets in the choir room (located between the sanctuary and the hallway to the gym) at 10:30 a.m. to rehearse for performance during the 10:45 a.m. service.
Are you thinking, “Is Chancel Choir for me?” Let us answer you with a couple more questions. Do you sing in the shower? Do your pets and significant others not always cover their ears when you “make a joyful noise”? Yes? You TOTALLY belong in chancel choir! Your mission, should you choose to accept it, is to show up on Thursday nights at 7:15 p.m. for rehearsal, enjoy the company of like-minded and enthusiastic musicians and near-musicians, and then show up again on Sunday mornings, usually for late service and very occasionally for early service to perform that week’s anthem.
