ADULT CHOIR - SCHOLA CANTORUM
The Schola Cantorum is comprised of adults and high school students from the congregation. They focus on proclaiming the Gospel through music from the wealth of classic choral repertoire ranging from medieval chant and renaissance motets to works written by living composers. The choir sings one or two times a month in worship, as well as other festival services. They rehearse at 11:45 a.m. on Sundays, in the choir room.
YOUTH CHOIR - KANTOREI
The Kantorei is a graded choral program for students in 3rd-8th grade. The Kantorei is a Royal School of Church Music–America affiliated choir program that cultivates children’s musical abilities for life long service to the church, develops the child’s singing voice, provides a foundation in musicianship. Potential singers are welcome to come try out a rehearsal at any time. The Kantorei sing in Sunday worship approximately once per month, in addition to Christmas Eve, Epiphany, Maundy Thursday, and Ascension services.
They rehearse weekly from 4 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. on Sundays in the choir room. In addition, a music workshop is offered from 3:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. for those choristers that want to enhance their music reading and understanding. | Kantorei Kamp 2017 Flyer & Registration
Adults and students are welcome in this choir, as well as anyone who would be available to substitute on a short-term basis. The prerequisites are fairly simple: availability for regular rehearsals, the ability to keep a steady beat (can you tap your toe to music on the radio?…if you can, you’ll be fine), and the ability to count to four, and on rare occasions six! All other skills will be introduced and taught in the rehearsals. The Handbell Choir rings for worship once every four to six weeks.
Hope is blessed with many talented instrumentalists who lend their talents. Worshipers often hear strings, woodwinds, and brass supporting and enhancing congregational singing, or providing a time of meditation. The resident brass ensemble can be found leading worship on festival services throughout the church year.
