Adult ChoirThe Adult Choir is made up of both volunteer singers and paid professionals, and is open to any adult who wishes to sing and meets basic criteria.
The adult choir generally meets from early September through early June, holding rehearsals Wednesday nights from 8-10pm and Sunday morning at 9am to prepare for the 10am service.
