Chancel Choir, Service of Lessons and Carols Dec. 5, 2021
On Easter Sunday, April 4, 2021, the choir joyfully made its first appearance in worship since Mar. 8, 2020. In August, we went back to our normal rehearsal schedule and singing from the choir loft during the 11:00 am worship services. Rehearsals are 7:00-8:15pm on Wednesdays in the Westminster Room (choir room) and 10:15-10:45 Sunday mornings in the sanctuary. The choir sings from mid-August through early May, and for special services including Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday and Maundy Thursday.
We are always eager to welcome new members! No experience is necessary; church membership is not required. For more information, please contact Rebecca te Velde, Director of Music and Organist at email@example.com or (405) 372-5580, or just come to rehearsal and join the fun! Anyone 6th grade and up is welcome.
In October of 2020, members of the Chancel Choir formed the "Courtyard Choir", singing masked and safely distanced in the church courtyard on Weds. evenings as weather permitted. Hear the "Courtyard Choir" here: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLbRmxlR6cgaPrE7-ejGhXsqBx5wVONZOe. We are very grateful to the FPC Second Mile Sewers for making our singers' masks, which we continue to use.
