Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir is a non-audition community of adult singers anchored by four professional section leaders. We lead vibrant congregational song and enhance worship with inspired music of all styles and eras. We welcome singers of all levels of training and experience, incorporating musical and vocal training into our rehearsals.

Rehearsals are Thursdays from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. in the Choir Room.

Shir Tikva and United Parish Collaboration Weekend, February 12-14

We will again be joining with the community of Temple Shir Tikva in Wayland this year, and hope that many of you will join us for either or both services! Our adult choirs will come together virtually to present The Storm is Passing Over, Here Comes the Sun, and Yah Ribon Alam, as we lean into the light, and celebrate our connection to one another and to all of creation.

The livestream service at Shir Tikva begins at 6:15pm on Friday, February 12, and is available on their Facebook page facebook.com/shirtikva and their YouTube channel youtube.com/templeshirtikva. Our service will begin at the usual time, Sunday, February 14 at 11am and can be found on our YouTube channel: youtube.com/unitedparishinbrookline. Contact Minister of Music Susan DeSelms for more information at susan@upbrookline.org.

We will also resume group voice classes and musicianship classes starting at the end of September. Please contact Minister of Music Susan DeSelms at susan@upbrookline.org for the Zoom information.
