Adult Choir

During this time of social-distancing, Christ Church Adult Choir meets weekly online to grow in musical skills, in spiritual formation, and in relationships. Choir members often say their participation in music ministry is one of the most fulfilling parts of their church lives. Consider joining the choir! You do not need to be a member of Christ Church to participate and don't let geography limit you -- since the choir meets online, we welcome your participation from wherever you may be. See below for more details.

 

 

The choir meets every Thursday from 7:15-8:15 PM. The typical Zoom Choir Rehearsals look like this:

  • Welcome and Fellowship
  • Warm-up and Vocal Exercises
  • Music Theory and Repertoire Study
  • Prayer
The primary “performance” platform right now is creating Virtual Choir videos. Singers submit individual recorded video clips of themselves, and the clips are edited and combined to create a Virtual Choir video. These videos are published online on the Christ Church YouTube Channel either as stand-alone videos, or included as part of an online worship service. Not a "techie"? Fear not! Help can be provided.

The music repertoire for each cycle that is studied during online rehearsals (see schedule below) culminates in these Virtual Choir recordings. 

Our repertoire/recording cycles follow the liturgical seasons, working one cycle ahead. During Advent, we prepared and recorded Christmas music. During the Christmas season, we worked on Epiphany music. During the Sundays following Epiphany we work on Lenten music, and so on.

This cycle-method provides thematic focus, programmatic structure, and allows for flexibility of participation because of its shorter commitment. You are welcome to join for as few or many cycles as you are able.  At the beginning of each cycle (the first two Thursdays of the liturgical season) the Choir would be looking at a new set of songs, and would be a perfect time to join.
