Zion Church Choir

It is the aim of our Choir to enhance, with music, our Sunday Holy Communion Service and special services throughout the year.  We practice at 9:15 a.m. each Sunday morning, preparing hymns, anthems, and service music.  We are a very congenial group of singers numbering about 12 very regular and others who join us when they can.  We can gather about 20 voices for the major festivals of the Church Year such as Christmas Eve and Easter.

All our singers are volunteers.  Some come with training in school choirs and a few have had further training.  We do not audition and welcome anyone who has a desire to sing in a group setting (Soprano, Alto, Tenor, and Bass).  We take pride in our work together.

We have a volunteer principal organist who is spelled once or twice a month by a paid organist so that he can sing too.  We also have a Soprano who plays the organ for most weekday services and on Sundays when there is a winter storm.

Other Choir activities include helping to sponsor and provide refreshments for our Parish Knickerbocker Memorial Concert Series.  The most recent of these was November 2007 when we arranged for the St. Petersburg (Russia) Men's Ensemble to perform at Zion.  We participate with other Church Choirs in our area for ecumenical services, and we recently hosted a Cabaret Night to raise money for Choir Vestments.  Because we love to socialize, we have a yearly picnic in the Summer.

We always need new voices!!  Interested?  Contact us at:  churchoffice@zionparish.org
