Choir Mission Statement

"Providing quality choral experiences and educational opportunities to the community since 1968"

* New Director Search *

 

February, 2016 - Just like the weather in Michigan, things just keep changing.  At a recent Choir Board meeting our Director, Garth Starr submitted his resignation and told us that this would be his last season. We have been very fortunate to have Garth for many years. He told us that he could no longer balance his time between Church, work, his family and the Choir.

Now it is the time to move forward and start looking for a new director.


 

This page is where we will post information about the position.  Please check back frequently and forward this page link to anyone who would be interested in this position.

The Choir has two seasons, Spring and Winter.  We perform 2 concerts in May and 2 in December each year.
