Sing the Hallelujah Chorus with the Choir on Easter Sunday!
You are cordially invited to sing the world’s most famous choral work with the adult choir near the conclusion of the Easter Sunday service. There will be a rehearsal for the 8:15 service at 7:45 in the Peace Chapel, and for the 10:30 service at 9:45 in the sanctuary. You are welcome to attend the rehearsal for the service that you plan to attend. All music will be provided. For many people, Handel’s “Hallelujah” is a powerful expression of faith and hope. If you would like to lift your voice as part of a massed choir, please join us on Easter.
