All are welcome to join the Chancel Choir! Chancel Choir is a welcoming community of adult singers, who lead at the 10:45 a.m. Traditions Service. We are looking for people who have the desire, interest and time for learning, rehearsing and singing everything from the simple and beautiful, to more challenging pieces of choral literature. As one choir member put it, we “sing everything from Palestrina to Rutter.”
The Choir sings almost every Sunday, September through June serving as the primary vocal music leadership for our Traditions worship services, 10:45 a.m. We rehearse most Wednesdays 7:15 – 9:15 p.m., and gathers to prepare for Sunday worship with warm up rehearsal and prayer at 9:30 a.m.
In addition to motets, anthems, spirituals and hymns prepared for worship, the Chancel Choir regularly prepares and performs large scale choral-orchestral works with the Wayzata Symphony Orchestra, sometimes for presentation in worship, sometimes in concert. Recent collaborations include Rutter and Mozart Requiems, and Bach St. John Passion. Our collaboration and partnership with WCC orchestra-in-residence is an amazing, wonderful and unique opportunity for Chancel Choir members.
