Adult Choir Sings Every Sunday

The 10 a.m. Holy Eucharist features congregational singing and choral music, led by our Director of Music, Mark Kaczmarczyk, and our talented adult choir. As our worship relates the scriptures of the day to our daily lives, the choral music also reflects the themes of the season.

Inspiration

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts unto God.  And whatsoever ye do, in word or in deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.    Colossians 3:16-17

 

Adult Choir

All parishioners and community members are warmly welcomed to sing in the Christ Church choir. Perhaps you have great music memories of singing in choir in High School, or belonged to a chamber choir or Glee Club in college. If so, consider stopping by any Thursday evening to give it a try. It's a wonderful opportunity to sing great choral literature, meet new friends, and spend some time "feeding your soul". We guarantee you'll leave feeling refreshed and renewed. For more information, contact Mark Kaczmarczyk at music@christchurchmanhasset.org.

Rehearsals

The choir rehearses on Thursdays from 7:00 - 8:30 p.m. in the Parish House. Sunday warm-up begins at 9:15 a.m.

Schola Cantorum

The Schola Cantorum made up of high school singers is looking for a few new and committed singers. Singers receive a small stipend for each service sung in the form of a scholarship when they complete high school. This is an opportunity for young singers to sing with a choir of volunteers and skilled professional section leaders. A vast repertoire of sacred music ranging from ancient Gregorian chant to very modern choral music is sung throughout the year. The SC rehearses with the Chancel Choir on Thursday evenings.

Donations to the Schola Cantorum will be gladly accepted.

Section Leaders

The choir is anchored by four section leaders:
