The Lapeer County Concert Choir 

The Lapeer County Concert Choir has been performing since 1968, known for its performances of large sacred works such as Bach's "Magnificat", Handel's "Messiah", Rutter's "Requiem", and Mozart's "Regina Coeli". 

 

As the choir moves toward its 50th year, the goal remains to promote the advancement of choral music, and reveal the healing power of voices united in song.

 

If you wish to join us, we rehearse on Monday nights in Lapeer at the Trinity Methodist Church.

“+Even When He Is Silent (2012) by Kim Andre' Arnesen" a work premiered by the St. Olaf Choir. Anthem Notes


This is a work about hope in the darkest time of life. The text was found on a wall at a concentration camp after World War 2 and was written by a prisoner.

"I believe in the sun, Even when it is not shining.
I believe in love, even when I feel it not.
I believe in God, even when he is silent."
