ADULT CHORAL ENSEMBLES
Approximately 200 adults participate in one of four adult singing choirs at Village Church. Many of them find this experience to be the place where they feel most connected to others, to their faith and to God. Choir is a place where you can be known and loved and included. Choir is a place where beauty and worship and music happen – but also a place for friendship and welcome.
Village Choir sings for 8, 9:30 and 11 a.m. Sunday worship services (choir members choose which service they sing). Rehearsals are Thursdays, mid-August through May from 7-8:30 p.m. The choir is open to all without audition. In addition to Sunday services, the choir presents several concerts each season and a highly anticipated annual Christmas Concert, Tidings of Joy. Contact Ryan Main for more information.
Chamber Choir is an option for Village Choir members who want to sing more challenging music. The choir rehearses from 8:30-9:30 p.m. on Thursdays, following Village Choir rehearsal. In collaboration with other community ensembles, the Chamber Choir presents two or three sacred concerts each year. Recent projects have included Bach's Mass in B Minor, Haydn's Creation and Vaughan Williams' Dona Nobis Pacem, all performed at the Kauffman Center's Helzberg Hall.

This choir is made up of young adults. The group rehearses from 7-7:30 p.m. on Thursday nights, and then most members join the rest of the Village Choir for the remainder of the rehearsal. Alegria participates in both Sanctuary and Gathering worship services, as well as in the Village Church Concert Series. Contact Elisa Bickers for more information.
