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.

This year, a Wish Tree will be added to our Marion Street lobby decorations. This is a tree of wishes for the various choirs we have at United Parish. What better time of year than now to put forth wishes for our choirs! There are color coded ornaments on the tree – Red for the Children and Youth Choirs wishes, Gold for the Bell Choir wishes, and Purple for the Adult choir wishes. Descriptions of what is wished for are on the back of the ornaments. Please feel free to look them over, and take any ornament with the wish item you would like to donate. Donations can be dropped off at the Church Office or Choir Room. Thank you for your support – it is greatly appreciated! Contact the Church Office at office@upbrookline.org.
