Chancel Choir

All events at St. Paul’s have been cancelled through March 31.

The Chancel Choir has Thursday night rehearsals beginning  at 7:30 p.m in the Music Room on the first floor and is under the direction of:  Victor Fields, Dean, York Chapter, American Guild of Organist …See Biography

The Chancel choir  is comprised of members of the congregation.  Anyone is invited to sing in the choir.  Most of the choir members do read music but that is not mandatory.  A love of singing and making music for the Lord is the heart and soul of the choir.  The Choir also helps with chanting and singing Psalms as well as providing leadership for singing the liturgical music settings sung throughout the service.  Members of the choir also are called to sing solos and duets, etc. in worship and offer their talents by playing instrumental solos and sometimes provide instrumental support for worship.

Chancel Choir needs YOU!!!

Please consider the following alternatives to help St. Paul’s Chancel Choir.

  • Sunday morning rehearsals in the Music room at 9:15 a.m. beginning in February.  If you are interested in singing but can’t commit to weekly rehearsals on Thursday nights, you are welcome to come on Sunday’s and rehearse the anthems with Victor.
  • If you don’t want to commit to singing every Sunday, come to rehearsals the Sunday before and the Sunday the anthem will be sung.
  • If you know which Sundays you can commit to sing, try to come to at least the Sunday prior and Sunday the anthem will be sung.
  • If you don’t want to robe and sit with the choir, you can simply come to the Chancel at the Offertory and sing without vesting.
  • If you can only sing on occasion, come to Sunday rehearsals.
  • If you are an experienced singer and reader and can learn the anthems on your own, I will be happy to have you sing.  Please talk with Victor to discuss.

Please consider lending your voice to the choral program if you are so inspired to sing!
