September-June: Emmanuel’s Adult Parish Choir meets Thursday Evenings, twice a month from 6:30 PM – 8:30 PM in the Choir Room and Sunday mornings at 8:50 and is open to all ages, beginning with high school. The Choir leads the congregation’s Sunday morning worship, hymn singing and liturgical service responses. The Choir offers Psalms and one or more choral anthems, which come from a wide variety of historic musical styles and periods from early music to present-day spiritual and folk. All the music texts reflect the church season and illuminate the scripture readings of the day. Participation in the choir highly rewarding and fun. Besides being religiously educational, choir singing is great aerobic exercise – reported to increase one’s life span. Our interim organist and music director is Waylon Whitley. The Emmanuel Parish Choir sings every Sunday and at the Christmas Eve and Holy Week services.
For more information about the Emmanuel Parish Choir please contact Mr. Waylon Whitley at church or the Rector.
We welcome Alexander (Xander) Wilkinson as Emmanuel’s Bell Choir Director. The Choir plays during the 10 AM service, with rehearsals on Sundays from 11:30-1:30. Please contact Xander at email@example.com for more information about joining the Handbell Choir.
