Choirs at Gustavus Adolpus Church
We welcome participate in our choirs. Feel free to come and join in a rehearsal and give us a try! If you’re interested in participating in one of our groups, take note of the rehearsal times below or contact email@example.com
Contemporary Choir – For high school through adults of all ages
Rehearsals: Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. Director: Joel Lurvey
GA Choristers Reimagined
Deacon Phil Holzman, in consultation with the Congregational Life Committee, is putting forward a new model for children’s music for the rest of this program year. We are going to involve all our Sunday school students in grades 1-5 in singing for worship two times (March 29 and April 26). The students will rehearse with Phil several Sunday mornings during part of the Sunday school time. This new model will take the place of the Wednesday night GA Choristers choir for the balance of this school year. Parents will hear more about this in the coming weeks.
Senior Choir – For high school through adults of all ages
Rehearsals: Wednesdays at 7:30 p.m. Director: Phil Holzman
Gustavus Bells – Substitute ringers needed!
Rehearsals: Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. Director: Phil Holzman
Additional Ways to Share Your Talents
Especially over the summer, we’re always looking for instrumentalists and vocalists to offer music for our worship services. If you’re interested in sharing your talents in worship, contact Phil Holzman.
Join the Northeast Chorale to Sing Dubois’ The Seven Last Words of Christ
The Northeast Chorale will once again join with GA’s Senior Choir to present the oratorio The Seven Last Words of Christ on Sunday, March 15, at 4:00 p.m. as this year’s MN FoodShare Benefit Concert. Our Senior Choir is rehearsing pieces from the oratorio at its Wednesdays evening rehearsals. Members of GA (and the northeast community) are most welcome to join the Northeast Chorale for this mini-session to learn and present The Seven Last Words… in March.
Chorale rehearsals will be held on Tuesdays at 6:30 p.m. at GA Church beginning on Feb. 11. There is no participation fee for this mini-session. High school and adult singers are welcome to join. If you aren’t a singer, you can plan to be in the audience for this benefit concert. Mark it on your calendar now for Sunday, March 15, at 4:00 p.m. Last year we raised over $1,900 at our FoodShare concert. Let’s see if we can do even better this year!
We are happy to have the Northeast Chorale rehearse at our church. The Chorale is a community choir that formed in 2015 and provides concerts in the spring and fall each year. In addition, they join with the Gustavus Adolphus Choir at Christmas for A Festival of Nine Lessons and Carols. You can learn more about the Northeast Chorale by going to their website at https://www.northeastchorale.org/
