For Adults: the Senior Choir (Grades 9 - Adult)
The Senior Choir is largely composed of parish volunteers and brings to our parish life an excellence and distinction appropriate to our Anglican heritage of liturgical and musical quality. In addition to contributing to our Sunday morning liturgies, the choir is active in the Diocese and in concerts and Evensongs, events intended to share the parish's musical gifts with the larger community. We also support many community events, such as the Thanksgiving and Martin Luther King Day services and the Holocaust Remembrance Service.
Regular rehearsals on Sunday ensure quality of ensemble and depth of fellowship, but one need not commit to singing every Sunday to join the choir. Choir members are very good about informing the Choirmaster of travel plans, business commitments, or other needs requiring "time off." In addition to this flexibility, we provide child care for small children during rehearsals to enable one or both parents to sing.
The Senior Choir is always interested in new members. St. Elizabeth's has many recent and wonderful additions to the parish family. We need to have these new families represented in all of our choirs. In addition, Senior Choir is becoming an increasingly popular place for high school age singers to serve St. Elizabeth's.
No one should be deterred from joining by feeling they are not good enough. We have an unbeatable combination of assistance from our skilled and personable soloists, study tapes of much of the music, and energetic rehearsals to bring the level of accomplishment we enjoy within reach. Talk to any member and they will confirm that we have fun, we work hard, and we are rewarded in so many ways, musically, spiritually, and personally.
If you or your children enjoy singing, you have a place in one of our choirs. Choir membership is an investment of time and talent which enables you to give back to God part of a gift he has given all of us - music. We need your voice, and you need to come forward and offer it.
