Join a choir or more!
We have a glorious choral music program at First Church and invite you to take part in the music ministries! All rehearsals will start shortly after Labor Day weekend.
JUBILEE SINGERS rehearses on Tuesdays from 6:30-7:20 PM in the Music Center each week. They sing approximately one Sunday a month at the 11 AM service. This is an extremely fun and relaxed group, and one seeking more members. If you want more fellowship in your life, to learn a little bit more about music, but don’t wish to sing in church each week, this is the group for you! Some highlights include a delightful Advent cantata, as well as a wonderful Lenten cantata. No audition is required.
CHANCEL CHOIR rehearses on Thursdays from 7-8:45 PM and is the main choir for the 9 AM service each week, with warmup at 8:15 AM The Chancel Choir delights in a variety of choral music throughout the ages from music composed hundreds of years ago, to new music with the ink barely dried! Additionally, the Chancel Choir sings for the two concerts each year, and at occasional other events/services such as Choral Evensong. The Chancel Choir is brilliantly supported by our four Section Leaders. Audition is NOT required.
Our newest ensemble is the CHAMBER CHOIR which rehearses after Chancel Choir on Thursday until 9:30 PM. The Chamber Choir sings approximately once a month at the 11 AM service. An audition is required for this ensemble, only to ensure that we have an appropriate balance of voices. This smaller ensemble will delight in slightly different repertoire than the Chancel Choir. Contact Brian Lustig to learn more.
MASTERWORK CHORALE the FUMC-based community choir, rehearses on Tuesdays from 7:30-9 PM in the Music Center each week and performs Advent and Spring Choral Concerts with our Chancel Choir. This year’s Advent concert features music composed by two living female composers: Elaine Hagenberg and Rosephanye Powell, as well as an extended anthem by English composer, Gerald Finzi. If you want to challenge yourself by learning some new masterpieces, this is the right place for you! Audition is not required, but registration is required and limited to 40 registrants per voice part (soprano, alto, bass/tenor). Registration is open August 29 through September 4, 2022 or until filled to capacity. Learn more here...
