The Chancel Choir is open to adults and high school students who can carry a tune. They meet for rehearsals on Thursdays from 7:30-9:00 pm, and sing at each Sunday worship service, from September through mid-June. They also sing special services during Holy Week (the week before Easter) and the 4 and 8 pm Christmas Eve services. The Choir collaborates frequently with the Handbell Choir, the Children’s Choir, and guest instrumentalists, offers a nurturing and high-level training and performing opportunity for high school students and adults, and frequently features new music written or arranged especially for First Church. The Choir enjoys the professional leadership of a quartet of top-tier soloists, who also take turns leading music during the summer months.
