Music Notes

by Karla Porter
Nativity Music Director

All are welcome to join our music program at church of the nativity. Music-reading not required! We have a vocal choir and a hand chime choir.

Choir normally meets Thursdays 7:00 pm to 8:30 pm.
Hand chimes normally meets Tuesdays. See calendar for exact times, or email us.

No choir or chime rehearsal during the summer.

Annual Appeal for Joining the Choir

If you can carry a tune and like to sing, consider joining the choir. We work hard ( you don't have to read music), but we have a lot of fun. Just ask any of the choir members! Beginning again in August, we rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30pm. If you would like to be a part of the ad hoc summer program, please see me or leave your name and phone number with Elly in the church office.
