Music

Music has long been a wonderful tradition at Christ Church.  Under the direction of Carol Cei, there are currently three musical ensembles:

Chancel Choir -
This adult group meets on Wednesday Evenings at 7 PM and performs at most Sunday 10:30 AM Services from September thru mid-June.  Most music is in 4-6 part harmony and is drawn from all musical periods - from the Renaissance to the 21st century.  We believe that variety is the spice of life!

Contemporary Chorale - You'll find this group on Wednesday evenings at 8:15 PM.  It is an intergenerational group, and we extend a special invitation to the high school and college students in the community.  The Chorale generally will perform at least one Sunday per month and sometimes will join with the Chancel Choir for special musical experiences.  Some of our selections are done in parts, others in unison.  Selections are in the Contemporary vein.  

Christ Ringers - Although most of this group also participates in one or both of the choirs, it is a great place for anyone who loves music but says they can't sing!  You don't even have to read music - just be able to move your arms and have a good time trying new things.  The Ringers meet on Wednesday evening at 6 PM.

Help Wanted:  Looking for some instrumentalists who would like to join with our Contemporary Chorale to add a new dimension to our music.  If you can play an instrument and would like to help, contact Carol Cei, Director or Music at 215-643-9661 or musicdirector@christucc.org.

NOTE:  All are welcome to participate.  You do not have to be a church member to perform in any of our ensembles. 

From 1/20-2018-03/25/2018 Rehearsal schedule is modified:
Christ Ringers:  6-7 PM
Cantata rehearsal:  7-7:45 PM
Chancel Choir:  7:45-8:15 PM

Palm Sunday - March 25, 2018   WHO IS THIS KING? - Larson and Martin        10:30 AM

Wherever Jesus went, there were those who believed Him to be the Messiah and others who were convinced He was a fraud.  This compelling Cantata explores both perspectives by blending a haunting melody and dramatic musical moments which ultimately asks the question, "Who is this King?"  

Plan to join us for this special musical event featuring our Chancel Choir and Contemporary Chorale along with the Christ Church Chamber Orchestra.

Are you a singer who would like to perform with us in this endeavor?  Rehearsals are from 7-7:45 PM beginning Wednesday, January 10, 2018.
