Under the talented, energetic, and dedicated direction of Senior Choir Director Shauna Sperry with talented accompanists, Charleswood United congregation enjoys an exciting and varied presentation of musical talent to enhance our Sunday worship experience. Every Thursday evening at 7:30 p.m. , Shauna meets with approximately 35 men and women of all ages to practice and produce inspiring anthems. The Sr. Choir sings at 11:00 a.m. each Sunday and at 9:00 a.m. and 11:00 a.m. on the first Sunday of each month for communion service. In addition they present appropriate music for special occasions such as Good Friday and Christmas Eve including some quite ambitious Cantatas.
With a talented group of vocalists and musicians to call upon from our congregation, as well as talent from the community at large, we are ensured spiritual musicality at those services where the Sr. Choir does not sing. These talented people also add inspiration and enhancement to both services on other occasions.
Anyone who is interested in taking part in our music program, whether on a regular basis or occasionally, vocal or instrumental, should feel welcome to contact Shauna at the Church Office, or just come to a choir rehearsal on Thursdays at 7:30 p.m. in the Sanctuary. We would love to have you!
