PC Chancel Choir



RPC’s music ministry thrives due to the many volunteers who contribute time and talent.  Singing in the Chancel Choir is a highly visible path of service that models a life of discipleship. Some specific information is printed below:                                            

  • The Chancel Choir sings each Sunday of the program year (approx. nine months), on the great festivals of the church year, and for occasional concerts or other services.
  • September 18 is the first Sunday of the 2016-2017 program year on which the full choir will lift its voice in worship.
  • The typical commitment is to be present on Sundays for warm-up at 9:15 a.m., for singing in the 10:00 a.m. service, and for a rehearsal from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. (Note there is time for all to enjoy fellowship at coffee hour following the conclusion of the 10:00 a.m. service.)
  • A few rehearsals will take place on Thursday evenings, these to allow for more focus on music for Cantata Sunday and Holy Week
  • Ability to identify simple notations of pitch and rhythm makes for ease of progress in rehearsal; but, those who do not yet know the “language” of music, yet are able to match and maintain pitch, are most welcome to give it a try.
  • The Chancel Choir is blessed to have section leaders who assist and help to inspire all singers.
