Ensembles – Seasonal
First Church Choral Union
The First Church Choral Union began in 2009, as an opportunity to unify the vocal resources of all youth and adult choirs in the church community. Since 2010, this project has supported the liturgy on Confirmation Sunday. It is fitting to have a multi-generational choral ensemble lead music in worship on such a Sunday, and offer an exciting chance for all youth and adult vocal choirs to unite into one voice, on an annual basis. The Ensemble will next participate in worship on Confirmation Sunday, May 21, 2017.
This choir has been the traditional choral ensemble for the Sunday worship service on Father’s Day. Generally first coming into session several weeks before participating in worship. Concentrating on classical 4-part (TTBB) choral literature, it draws its members from all parts of the First Church congregation.
Men’s Choir rehearses this season, starting Thursday, June 1, 2017, 7:00 PM on a flexible Tuesday/Thursday schedule. For more information or to sign up, contact the Music office at 882-4861, x15.
Open to anyone in Grade 7 through adult, this project offers a meaningful chance to work within the music ministry without the long-term commitment of a regular choir. This 2016-2017 Season, the choir will participate in worship on Maundy Thursday, April 13, 2017, with rehearsals set on Tuesday, April 4, 2017 at 7:00PM and Tuesday, April 11, 2017, at 7:00 PM.
