Northminster’s choir program provides opportunities for musical learning, spiritual growth, liturgical training and fellowship. It is an integral part of the worship life of the congregation. Choir singers know that rehearsal time is time well spent, and they come to understand that they are participating in an activity that has continued for centuries throughout the world. Singing in choir means we join with the saints of all generations and across the boundaries of time.
We always welcome new choir members. Contact John Wright, Director of Music Ministries, with questions.
