The Chancel Choir comprises about 15 members of the parish who sing in our 10:30 am worship on Sunday morning and in other services. The Chancel Choir rehearses on Wednesday evening from 6:30-8:30pm, and prior to the service on Sunday mornings.
The Funeral Choir is a group of church members, many of them retired, who are able to respond to short notice to provide musical leadership for funeral services.
The Treble Choir is open to singers who read between ages 7-16, and rehearses on Wednesday afternoons from 4:00-5:00pm. They sing occasionally in worship on Sunday, sometimes singing their own anthems, and sometimes joining with the Chancel Choir. The Treble Choir program is affiliated with the Royal School of Church Music (RSCM). The RSCM works throughout the English-speaking world to promote the use of music in enriching Christian worship and to provide practical means of achieving the highest possible performance standards for music in worship. Singers are educated in vocal production, music reading and theory, music and church history, and Christian formation.
Holy Comforter has an active musical life with other offerings in addition to Sunday morning services. These include sung Compline services, Choral Evensong services, and a series of choral, voice, and organ recitals, often in conjunction with musicians from the broader community. We invite you to join the music ministry at Holy Comforter, either as an active musical participant or as an active listener and supporter.
