General Assembly Choir
Each year a talented group of choral singers gathers to practice and perform for the General Assembly (GA) audience. Typically the choir participates in the Sunday Morning Worship and the Closing Celebration, and sometimes other events or hymn sings during GA.
Pre-register to reserve your place. Registration opens March 1.
Onsite sign-up will only occur if space is still available.
Participants must be registered for General Assembly to participate in choir (though you may register for choir prior to registering for GA). Choir registration is on a first-come, first-served basis. The choir is capped at 180 singers with balanced sections and the spaces are filled quickly. All participants must contribute $15 toward the cost of choir octavos, payable by MasterCard or Visa at the time of choir registration. Singers may pick up their music at the first rehearsal. If all available choir spots fill, a waiting list will be formed for spots that may open after the first rehearsal on Wednesday.
Singers are required to sing in both the Sunday Morning Worship (time tbd) and the Closing Celebration (time tbd). Attendance at all rehearsals is expected.
Martha (Marty) Swisher, Music Director at Unity Temple in Oak Park, IL, will be GA Choir director for 2019. Peter Storms, also of Unity Temple, will be the accompanist.
