The Parish Choir

The Parish Choir plays an important role in the liturgies at Grace Church. In addition to performing the crucial role of leaders of congregational song, the members of the Choir prepare and present an anthem each week as a part of Grace Church's musical worship. The Choir sings a wide range of choral literature in a variety of styles, from American Gospel to Gregorian Chant, and in several languages. 

Membership in the Parish Choir is open to all interested adults. The Choir rehearses from 7:30pm until 9:00pm on Wednesdays during the Choir Season, which usually runs from September through June. During this season, the Choir sings at the 10:30am Holy Eucharist service on Sundays, occasional Evensong services, as well as various special feasts for the church year. All of the members of the Parish Choir are volunteers. For more information, please contact Grace Church's Director of Music, Ryan Patten.
