Our Music Ministry

Music is central to Christ Church’s mission and worship life. Our Adult Choir welcomes all who wish to offer their voices. The choir rehearses Thursday nights from 7:30 to 9 PM in the Choir Loft of the New Brick Sanctuary and meets at 9:45 AM on Sunday mornings to warm up and rehearse for the 10:30 service of Holy Eucharist. The choir also offers special evening services of Choral Evensong and Lessons and Carols.

Launched in January of 2019, Christ Church’s Royal School of Church Music (RSCM) Chorister program already numbers almost twenty choristers. This program uses the acclaimed VOICE for LIFE curriculum, cultivating a healthy vocal technique and developing a deep understanding of music theory. Choristers are paid a small stipend for their participation in rehearsal and worship, which increases as they move through the curriculum. Chorister families have a choice of Tuesday or Thursday rehearsals, and participate in morning worship on the first Sunday of the month. They also offer Choral Evensong on the third Sunday of the month. For detailed information, including a program handbook and a link to a Google Form to sign up, please visit our RSCM page.

Vocal Soloists and Instrumentalists are also encouraged to join in the musical tradition of CEC. A wealth of talent within our congregation is the source of much of the special music offered at CEC throughout the year. Whether a young pianist, high school instrumentalist, or adult soloist, all are encouraged to share their God-given gifts in praise and worship.
