HSPC Choirs - Thursday, August 11, 2016

All of our church choirs are preparing for the new season and will be resuming their rehearsal schedules in the coming weeks.  All of our choirs are open to anyone who would like to participate.  All rehearsals are informal and a great opportunity to enjoy time together and to share the gift of music with our entire congregation. 

Sanctuary Choir is made up of youth and adults.  The Sanctuary Choir rehearses on Thursdays at 7:00 P.M. in the church parlor. Rehearsals are approximately one hour, and our first rehearsal will be September 8th.

Children's Choir meets on Sunday mornings at 8:45 in the Sanctuary immediately preceding Sunday School.  The first rehearsal of this group for this season will be Sunday September 18th.

Our Bell Choir will begin rehearsals later this month.  If you are interested in joining this group, it would be helpful for you to speak with Gene Hopkins before coming.  Because of the special nature of this choir, bell assignments and music need to be prepared before rehearsal.  You can speak with Gene in person or call him. (842-2272)

We have a choir for you.  This is the year for you to join the Music Ministry in our church.  If you have any questions about any of our choirs, please speak with Gene Hopkins at any time, or call him at 842-2272.

Our Sanctuary Choir (High School—Adult)  rehearsal time is Thursday 7:00pm – 8:00pm in the Church Parlor.  If you have any questions concerning any of our choirs please feel free to call or speak to Gene Hopkins.  Hickory Street has always been a very musical congregation and we are always hoping to welcome new members to our music makers.

The Sanctuary Choir is a mixed vocal ensemble open to all youth and adults. This choir provides an anthem for and leads musically in the Worship Service each Sunday September through Father's Day. The group rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:30 - 8:30 P.M. in the Church Parlor. Rehearsals are fun and informal and some members enjoy coming a little early to enjoy some social time together. There are no auditions and our only requirement is that you enjoy "Making a joyful noise to the Lord".

The Children's Choir is a vocal choir designed for children 4 and up with unchanged voices. This group meets each Sunday at 8:45 AM in the Sanctuary. Rehearsals dismiss at 9:15 so that the children can move directly into the Church School. This group shares anthems in Worship periodically throughout the school year. Typically the choir rehearses from September through Mother's Day.
