“Make a joyful noise to God, all the earth! Sing of His name, give glory to His praise!”
In the Orthodox Faith, our singing in church is meant to be an Icon of worship. Liturgical music is not something added to prayer. Rather, it is the way we pray in church when we assemble together as God’s People. All the words of Orthodox services, are either chanted or sung by readers and choirs and when possible the congregation. Worship is central to the life of the Orthodox Faithful. Our praises are offered a cappella, as the human voice is the only instrument created directly by God.
The choir’s mission is to lead the worship responses at all Orthodox liturgical services in a prayerful and conscientious manner. The choir strives for ongoing improvement of singing skills, ongoing education of singers and training for the next generation of singers.
