Cherub Choir

(Kindergarten – 2nd Grade)

The Cherub Choir is a wonderful way for all K-2 students to make a joyful noise unto the Lord! Rehearsals are held on Wednesdays from 4:45 p.m. until 5:30 p.m. in the church. We sing in church monthly during the 9 a.m. service. No experience is required and no sign up is necessary.

Choristers

The Christ Church Choristers have three main components, the training choir (grades 3-6), the full choristers (grades 6.5-12), and the lay clerks (the professional singers who make up the altos, tenors and basses of choir).

The Training Choir

(Girls and Boys, Grades 3-6)

This choir is primarily focused on teaching young children to read, understand and sing classical music at a pace appropriate for their age range, while building community with fellow Christians and Christ Church members. Rehearsals are Sundays from 1 p.m. until 2:30 p.m., and every other Tuesday, from 6 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. (dinner included). The Training Choir sings one Sunday morning each month as well as at evensong at Duke Chapel, and for lessons and carols.

The Full Choristers

(Girls and Boys whose voices haven’t changed, Grades 7-12)

The Full Choristers are girls or boys with treble voices who sing cathedral level classical music for Sunday morning services, services of choral evensong, concerts, collaborations with Duke Chapel and on tour (previous tours include New York City, Washington, D.C., Colonial Williamsburg, and Paris and London). In addition to rehearsals, Sundays from 1 p.m. until 3 p.m., and every other Tuesday night from 6 p.m. until 7 p.m. (dinner included), the receive private instruction in voice and music reading.
