For those wishing to step beyond the congregation and offer their musical talents at another level, we offer several choirs. One need not be a member of Christ Church to sing in our choirs. Contact Director of Music Clifford Badgley for more information.
Sings at the 11 am service September through May. Parish Choir also offers Choral Evensong, Lessons & Carols, and other Holy Day liturgies throughout the church year. Repertoire is drawn from diverse sources including chant, Renaissance motets, spirituals, and 19th-, 20th-, and 21st- century choral music. Rehearsals are Wednesday evenings from 7 to 9 pm in the church. A short, simple audition is required.
The 8:30 choir sings twice monthly at the 8:30 service. Our music is taken from
contemporary Christian and folk-style music. Rehearsals are at 6 pm on the first
and third Tuesdays of each month. All are welcome.
Our handbell choir practices and plays on our 3-octave set of
Schulmerich bells. Music reading skills are helpful but not necessary.
Rehearsals are Tuesday evenings 7 to 8 pm. Space is limited, so be
sure to call handbell director Jean Reichenbach to ask about availability.
High School students are invited to join handbells, too!
Solos and Small Groups
Those interested in singing solos or working in small groups should
contact Clifford for more information.
Questions about any of our groups? New choir members are welcome
at any time during the year. It is not necessary to read music. All groups
are volunteer organizations. Please contact music director Clifford
Badgley by phone, by e-mail, or wander up to the balcony after
services. He will be glad to chat.
