“Sing to the Lord a new song, sing to the Lord all the whole earth…”
The Music Program at Christ Church Greenwich enriches the worship life of the parish through song. Striving to foster and strengthen a lifelong appreciation for music in children and adults, the Music Program offers abundant opportunities for singers, instrumentalists, and listeners to get involved. Generations of choristers have found friendship, fun, and a welcoming community through their involvement in the choirs of Christ Church Greenwich.
From weekly celebrations of the Holy Eucharist to monthly Evensongs to the solemn annual liturgies of Christmas Eve and Easter Vigil, the choirs of Christ Church Greenwich play a central role in this parish’s rich life of worship. While services and liturgies are conducted according to the Episcopal Church’s Book of Common Prayer, singers of all backgrounds and faith traditions participate in our choirs. Our only expectations for choristers are a willingness to learn and a desire to work together to achieve common goals.
In addition to the normal pattern of choral services, the choirs of Christ Church Greenwich present several concerts through the course of the year. Often, these concerts afford the opportunity to sing with visiting choirs from around the United States and the world. Every two years, one of our choirs goes on a concert tour abroad. Past venues have included Exeter Cathedral, St. George’s Chapel, Windsor, St. Paul’s Cathedral, London, and St. John’s College, Cambridge.
This active schedule of singing and performing is grounded in many opportunities for fun and fellowship together. Each summer, the boys and girls of our choirs spend a week at Choir Camp, receiving personalized voice training, taking part in daily rehearsals, and enjoying ample time for games and activities. Even after choristers graduate from the choir, the opportunity for fellowship continues through involvement in SATB, our Music Program Alumni Association.
If your child is interested in receiving a world-class music education, making life-long friendships, enjoying the fellowship of an active, supportive community, and performing in extraordinary settings around the world, we hope you will contact us about joining one of the choirs of Christ Church Greenwich! Come sing with us!
