Our Choirs

Join us! Everyone has a place in the choir — some sing low and some sing higher! Men, women, youths, and even children are welcome (note: children may prefer to join the Children's Choir). Please come and try us out; there are no auditions, no experience is necessary, and there is no obligation to stay. If you love to sing, then please consider yourself warmly invited.

Music: we sing many styles of music, including classical, world music, folk song, and even popular idioms. There is truly something for everyone! If you don't read music, that's okay - we'll help you. If you like to sing, we'll find a place for you!

Instrumentalists: if you play an instrument and would like to get involved, please let us know and we'll add your name to our list. We often need instruments to play with the choir.

Schedule:the choir sings during Sunday morning worship services (10:30 am), as well as special services and concerts. Rehearsals are held each Wednesday evening, usually 7:15 to9:00 p.m. in the Hudson choir room (upstairs). Rehearsals are also held on Sunday mornings at 9:15 a.m. immediately before services. In the summer the choir takes a break and resumes in September.

Contact:  The choir is led by our Interim Minister of Music and Arts, Carl Pantle. Please leave a message at 650-343-3694 for more information, or email cpantle@ccsm-ucc.org

The group meets most Sunday mornings before church from 9:30 to 10:15 a.m. in the Youth Room, and sings in the church service nine to ten times a year. Director Julie Berk enthusiastically welcomes all interested children, and will consider those younger than 5 by special permission. For more information, please call 343-3694.

Carillon Bell Choir

Ding! Dong! Ding! Dong! Sundays are extra-special when the handbell choir is on hand to enhance worship! And Lynnelle Bilsey has taken our excellent Carillon Bell Choir on the road to "Spring Ring Festivals." Lynnelle loves to welcome new handbell ringers into the Carillon Bell Choir. Interested? Give her a ring at 342-1795.
