The Senior Choir practices on Wednesday evenings from 6:00 - 7:30 (mid-August - May) and sings at the 11:00 a.m. service on Sundays. Warm-up on Sunday mornings typically is at 10:15, although certain circumstances may require an earlier practice.
The choir also sings for various special services throughout the year, such as those liturgies associated with the seasons of Advent/Christmas and Lent/Easter.
The choir takes vacation during the month of June (after Pentecost Day). Professional caliber guest musicians provide prelude and offertory music on those Sundays. During July and the first two weeks of August, the choir rehearses at 9:30 on Sunday mornings. Wednesday rehearsals resume in mid-August.
New singers are always welcome. Though it helps to be able to read music, it is not a requirement. Members are expected to attend rehearsal on a regular basis and to be present when the choir is scheduled to sing for a service. Those interested in joining the choir are asked to call Tammy Williams at 662-5585.
The Junior Choir practices on Sundays from 2:45-3:45 and sings at the 11:00 service about once every 4-6 weeks. This choir is open to children in grades 3 and above. Younger children will be considered on an individual basis.
Belle Amis Handbell Choir
Our fledgling handbell choir practices on Sundays from 2:45-3:45 (concurrently with junior choir practice) and rings on selected occasions throughout the year. Parishioners of any age are welcome, but consistant attendance at practice is critical.
