OTHER CHOIRS

Schola Cantorum

The Schola Cantorum made up of high school singers is looking for a few new and committed singers. Singers receive a small stipend for each service sung in the form of a scholarship when they complete high school. This is an opportunity for young singers to sing with a choir of volunteers and skilled professional section leaders. A vast repertoire of sacred music ranging from ancient Gregorian chant to very modern choral music is sung throughout the year.

Donations to the Schola Cantorum will be gladly accepted.

Long Island Choral Society

Our choir director and organist, Meredith Baker, also directs the Long Island Choral Society. The public is invited to concerts at Christ Church. See the attached flyer for more details.

Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly; in all wisdom teaching and admonishing one another with psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts unto God.  And whatsoever ye do, in word or in deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.
