The Good Shepherd parish choir is a small, well balanced, and carefully trained ensemble dedicated to supporting our worship through hymns, anthems, plainsong and Anglican chant, and other service music. The choir sings a variety of works, largely drawn from the Anglican and Latin choral traditions. Many of the anthems are sung without instrumental accompaniment.
The choir includes both professional and dedicated volunteer singers who share a strong commitment to providing high quality music that is an essential part of our worship. Currently, the choir consists of 7 professional and 10 volunteer members. We welcome new members who have basic music reading skills and the desire to work cooperatively within this disciplined choral group. Those interested in singing with the choir, either as a volunteer or as a professional, should contact Dr. Klein at the church office.
The choir sings at the 10:00 a.m. Sunday Sung Eucharist each week (except during late June, July and August), as well as at evening services on Ash Wednesday, Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, Easter Eve, and Christmas Eve. Other services such as Choral Evensong and Benediction are scheduled as occasions arise. Rehearsals are held at 8:45 a.m. each Sunday, with rare special rehearsals.
