    Choir, Orchestra & Band
    Serving in worship services
     

    Our Calvary Choir, Orchestra, Band, and Tech Team are made up of Calvary members of all ages who serve on Sundays in our worship services. We prepare each week during "Wednesday Worship" where we rehearse and grow together through prayer and rich community. Extensive musical experience is not required, just a heart for Christ-centered, God-glorifying worship.

    New members are accepted in September and in January. Training is provided for all tech team roles.

    Email Christy Driscoll at cdriscoll@calvarychurch.com to learn more about Worship Ministries and how you can get involved.

    We'll have one combined choir for ages 4 through 5th grade. We will meet via Zoom and in-person for scheduled rehearsals and/or events one to two Sunday afternoons each month. Once you register, we'll send you all the details and a link to the music you can download and learn at home.

    Though we must be socially distanced, and we're unable to sing together regularly, it's still important for us to be singing joyfully to our great God! We are SO excited to come together virtually and on-campus!
