Choirs at Northminster
This 30+ voice adult ensemble is under the direction of Dr. Christopher Owen. Made up of both volunteer and professional members, the choir rehearses weekly and performs throughout the year.
The Chancel Choir prepares and performs several major works in both worship and in concert each year. These larger works have included Masses by Schubert and Haydn; cantatas by Pinkham and Bach; as well as Requiem masses by Faure. It is open to musicians of all levels and welcomes new members.
Hand Bell Choirs
Northminster has both an adult and a youth hand bell choir. These ensembles are made up of volunteer musicians and open to all who are interested. They rehearse weekly and perform monthly in the worship services.
The 6th - 8th grade bell choir meets on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m. in the Bell Room to rehearse under the direction of Dr. Owen. This choir prepares anthems to be shared with the congregation in the 9:30 a.m. worship service.
Sunday School Choir
Children in grades 1-5 rehearse under the direction of Molly Kelly following Sunday School, from 10:45 to 11:05 a.m. This rehearsal time reinforces songs the children have learned throughout each of the Sunday School units. The Sunday School Choir frequently shares this music with the congregation in the 9:30 a.m. worship service.
