Festival Choir

The Festival Choir combines singers from both the Sanctuary Choir and Celebration Singers, as well as additional members of the congregation who enjoy singing with the choir on special occasions but cannot commit to weekly rehearsals throughout the year.  This group prepares a small major work with chamber orchestra, and is often a highlight for both the singers and the congregation.  Past offerings include:  Mozart’s “Missa Brevis in d minor,”  Vivaldi’s “Gloria,”  as well as seasonal Cantatas for Advent and Holy Week. 

Children's Music
