Choirs

FESTIVAL CHOIR

Director: DeAndre Johnson

Sings: Music of all types at the 10:55 am Festival Worship (a traditional service).

Rehearsal Options: Regular weekly rehearsals begin August 9 at 7 pm in the Choir Room.

Singing is scientifically proven to be one of the healthiest things you can do. Singing is also one of the ways in which we are invited to join in God’s redemptive work in the world. The hymn writer Mel Bringle puts it this way: Sing a new world into being, sound a bold and hopeful theme. Find a tune for silent yearnings, lend your voice and dare to dream.

So, if you love to sing and would dare to dream of God’s reign on earth as in heaven, then come and lend your voice with others as a part of the Festival Choir. This group of adult singers provides musical leadership in the 10:55 am Festival service. There is no audition or previous experience required as the choir is open to adults of all abilities.

Regular weekly rehearsals begin August 9 at 7 pm in the Choir Room. For more information about participating in the choir or other music ensembles, contact Pastor DeAndre at deandre@christchurchsl.org.
