The Sanctuary Choir is open to anyone high school age and up. Music reading skills are not required, though some sense of pitch and rhythm are helpful! The Sanctuary Choir rehearses from September through Pentecost and sings at worship nearly every week. Music selections range from chant and Reformation era chorales to new musical settings and global music. Rehearsals are Wednesdays at 7:00 pm.
