    Choir, Orchestra & Band
    Accepting drummers, bassists, keyboardists & guitarists

    Our Calvary Choir, Orchestra, Band, and Tech Team are made up of Calvary members of all ages who serve on Sundays in our worship service. We prepare each week during "Wednesday Worship" where we not only rehearse but also grow together through prayer and rich community.

    Drummers, bassists, keyboardists & guitarists needed
    Calvary's Worship Team seeks additional musicians to deepen our ministry rotation during services. If you have a worshiping heart, a desire to be part of a great team, are a member of Calvary and possess skills in any of these areas, please contact: Christy Driscoll, 704.887.3687, cdriscoll@calvarychurch.com


    New members are typically accepted each year in September and January. We invite everyone who might be interested in any capacity to attend rehearsals and explore serving in worship. Extensive musical experience is not required, and training is provided for all tech team roles. The most important qualification is having a Christ-centered heart and a desire for God-glorifying worship!

    Email Christy Driscoll at cdriscoll@calvarychurch.com to sign up for a rehearsal. Rehearsals are typically held on Wednesdays at 6:30–8:00 PM.
