Go On A Musical Pilgrimage: Sing with the Summer Choir

June 19, 2022

Come As You Are

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to sing with the choir? Perhaps you've given thought to experimenting with joining, but never knew if it would be right for you? 

This summer, you are invited to come as you are and sing with the choir. In order to give you a better picture of how singing with the Summer Choir varies from singing with the Chancel Choir, our Director of Music has prepared an outlook for what participation from June through August might look like.

  • There are no rehearsals. Simply arrive by 9:15 a.m. and find a seat in the chancel. No need to come earlier or stay later.
  • There are no vestments. This is where "come as you are" can be seen most clearly. Wear whatever you are most comfortable wearing. 
  • There are no sung psalms or anthems. Musical leadership of the church's song is limited to hymns and liturgical music. Special music is provided by our Director of Music, lay musicians, and other special guests.
  • There are no long-term commitments. Unlike joining the choir in the Fall, there is no expectation to show up every week or to commit for a certain length of time. Come as often or as little as you like. This is a great time to test the waters and see what it is like singing from the other end of the church!
  • There are no special seating arrangements. This is an excellent opportunity for the whole family to sit together. Spouses, partners, parents, children, etc. are all welcome to come and sit together! 

Will you join us? See you this Sunday at 9:15 a.m. in the chancel!
