The Christ Church Choir, under the direction of the Rev. Kathryn Nichols, with Dr. Mark Brombaugh accompanying, enhances our worship with varied genres of choral music. We are comprised of dedicated singers who rehearse together most Thursday evenings from 7:30 p.m. to 9:00 p.m., and sing for the 10:30 a.m. liturgy on Sundays from September to June, plus special liturgies. We are bound by a love of singing and church music, by the opportunity to offer our prayers and praises through music, and by the pleasure of companionship, good humor and support for each other
Are you interested in singing with us?
Enjoy laughing, making music together and polishing vocal techniques in the reverberant acoustic of our 1969 building, designed by award-winning architect, Paul Thiry. We create exquisite sounds in concert with our renowned Brombaugh pipe organ and various instrumentalists. Refresh your spiritual life by singing in our choir and discover a home away from home. Rehearsal CDs of individual voice parts are provided for home study, so rehearsal time can be used for refining the music, more than note learning. If a rehearsal is occasionally missed, people can still be prepared. This is a great way to participate in a friendly Tacoma community. Newcomers are welcome in all sections!
End-of-Summer Choral Adventures
On two Sundays we invite all who can carry a tune and attend one rehearsal to sing at the 10:30 a.m. eucharist. This is a fun way to have a rich choral experience, gain some new skills with no long-term commitment, and enrich our worship life. Contact our music directors if you can sing with us so we can have music and seating organized. Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
