The Adult Choir provides music for the Sunday worship service in a variety of musical styles ranging from Renaissance to contemporary. The singers often combine with instrumental ensembles to present special musical performances during the Christmas and Easter seasons. In recent years, they have performed Bach cantatas, Lloyd Pfautsch’s “A Day for Dancing” (with liturgical dancers), and Rob Landes’s “Jazz Gloria” (with piano, bass, and drums). The choir is sometimes accompanied by the church’s historic Flentrop organ, modeled on the instrument that Bach used in Leipzig.
Choir rehearsal times: Adult Choir rehearsals take place on Thursday nights from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. in the Community Room. The Sunday Morning warmup is at 10:40 a.m.
