Adult Choir

The Emmanuel Choir is the musical backbone of the parish singing for the 10:30 a.m. liturgy each Sunday morning. In addition to their weekly duties, the choir sings for special liturgies throughout the year such as Choral Evensong, Advent Lessons and Carols, and Christmas Eve, Holy Week and Easter. Contact Michael Brewer, Director of Music.

The choral repertoire of the Emmanuel Choir is grounded in the Anglican choral tradition. Our musical offerings span the centuries from 16th century composers, such as Palestrina and  Tallis, to 21st century composers, such as John Rutter and Mack Wilberg. 

Choir rehearsals are held on Wednesday nights and we meet again at 9:30am on Sunday mornings to prepare for the 10:30 am liturgy. We do not rehearse during the summer months, usually mid-May to mid-August. However, the choir continues to sing each Sunday morning and persons who do not sing in the choir throughout the year are invited for the summer months. 

Children's Choir
If you are interested, please reach out to me by email! I would love to address any questions or concerns. Last year, our children’s choir grew to a group of about 12 students, who sang, played bells, and gathered together to make a joyful noise. In this time where we cannot gather, I would love to still have a level of fellowship and create something beautiful for our church to enjoy.
 
Please join us for Children's Choir. We will practice on Sundays following the 10:30am service and will last approximately 45 minutes. We meet in the Children's Choir room downstairs. Please email kenzie.ld21@gmail.com for more information or to register your child.

LOOK WHAT'S HAPPENING IN CHILDREN'S CHOIR - It's Hispanic and Latinx Heritage Month! From September 15 to October 15, the United States honors the cultures and contributions of Hispanic and Latinx Americans. September 15 is significant as it marks the Independence Day for 5 Latin American countries: Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua. Mexico and Chile then celebrate their Independence Days on September 16 and September 18, respectively. Emmanuel's Children's Choir has been working to recognize and understand the importance of this month in our country and will be singing a bilingual anthem based on a traditional Spanish song "Quiero Guardar mi Corazón". Join us in celebrating this month and thank our Hispanic and Latinx parish members for their contributions to our community!
