In September, the sanctuary choir will resume rehearsing and singing on Sunday mornings. Below is the September choir schedule. If you would like to try us out, please feel free to start coming to rehearsals or the choir retreat and feel free to contact me if you have any questions about our program. Our choir rehearsals will be fun and full of music from many genres. All are welcome!
I am always interested in learning who plays instruments in the congregation (as well as singing!). I am available by phone (781-862-8200 x4), email, or appointment if you would like to share your musical talents in worship and concerts!
Peace and blessings,
