Chancel Choir

7:00-8:30 pm
Nursery/child care is available.

At First United Methodist Church of Gilbert we are blessed to have a mixed (SATB) choral ensemble that performs at the 9:00 Worship service during the months of September through June. Our Choir, averaging 35 singers on any given Sunday, enjoy singing together to assist in creating a musical presence for worship services at Christ Church and beyond

Who is Welcome?

The Chancel Choir is open to all singers High School age and above. There is no audition required. We have singers of all levels, those with little choral background to the very accomplished with a lifetime of choral experience. This unique group is bound together through its love of Christ and the joy of making great choral music in his worship. New singers are always welcome. To sing with the Chancel Choir simply attend a rehearsal.

Concerts, Larger Choral Works and Special Events

Special performances during Advent and Holy week and throughout the year are also performed.  The the past we have performed A Festival of Lessons and Carols by John Leavitt; A Ceremony of Lessons and Carols by Anna Laura Page and Jean Anne Shafferman. During Easter, 2010, we sang Requiem by Gabriel Fauré.

The Chancel Choir takes a well deserved break during the months of June and July.  During those summer months, members from the Choir and Congregation perform as solo’s or groups during the first service.
