As the cornerstone of the Music Ministry at Second, the Chancel Choir’s mission is to bring glory to Jesus Christ through music that reflects our faith through joyful worship and excellence. A non-auditioned group, the choir meets on Wednesday evenings from 7:30-9 p.m. and sings each week at the 11 a.m. worship service.
Chancel Choir Resources
Laudis Domini Ensemble
This auditioned, select ensemble specializes in singing the great sacred repertoire intended for smaller groups such as Renaissance and Baroque era music, British Cathedral music, motets and part music.
For those who enjoy playing handbells, we have a group that rehearses weekly on Tuesdays at 6 p.m. and plays throughout the church year. For more information, contact Terri Theil at (901) 454-0034, ext. 171.
This ensemble sings each week at the 8:15 a.m. service and its members are selected by the director from within the Chancel Choir. This choir also prepares music for special events and concerts.
We strive to use a variety of instruments for our worship services and special events. We hope to offer our members who are gifted in playing an instrument an opportunity to use their talents. Instrumentalists should contact the music office to find ways to get involved.
