Our choir is small but mighty, and we have so much fun.  We meet for practice every Wednesday, usually at 6 p.m, and sing at services usually every other Sunday.  We are always looking for singers to join us. 

We are privileged to have two talented organists, who can play the whale out of our beautiful Schanz organ and are pretty good on the piano, too.
