Sing praises to God, sing praises; Sing praises to our King, sing praises. Psalm 47:6
Music is a vital part of the liturgy at The Parish of the Ascension. Members of the congregation are blessed to have very devoted and talented church choirs in our parish.
At most of the worship services at the parish music plays an integral role, whether is it Sunday services, seasonal services, funerals, weddings, and other special services throughout the year, music is provided.
If you enjoy singing you are most welcome to join a choir at the parish. Our senior choir is a committed group of adults who devote their time and talent to lead the singing of hymns, psalms, and anthems at our services. The ability to read music is not necessary to become a member of our choir, just the love of singing. We meet weekly on Wednesday evenings from 7 – 8:30 pm for choir practice in the church, and to attend Sunday services and special services throughout the year.
Our Junior choir is for young people age 9 years and older. They meet Wednesday evenings from 5:45 to 6:15 pm in the church for choir practice. The goal of our junior choir is to learn hymns, psalms, and anthems to sing at various services during the year.
We have participated in concerts and fundraisers in recent years and it is a joy to sing with other musical groups in concerts and special events.
If you are interested in joining one of our choir(s), please contact the organist/choir director and /or a member of a choir for further information.
