Emmanuel Congregational Church

The Choir

Emmanuel Church has an exceptionally dynamic, diverse, and extensive music program for a church its size.  Though we are not a large congregation, we have a sizeable choir full of gifted singers and soloists. Phillip Lai, our Contemporary Music Director, organist, and composer in residence, is a gifted accompanist and singer.  Most of his Preludes and Postludes on the organ are his own compositions.  We are presently in search of a new choir director who would enjoy working collaboratively with Phillip, the co-pastors, and, of course, our energetic choir. 

The Emmanuel choir performs many styles of music from classical to contemporary, barbershop to gospel, praise music to rock-n-roll. The choir is always ready to venture into new musical territory, and is known for having a good time!  The choir’s anthems are often enriched by a number of talented church instrumentalists on flute, recorder, Irish whistle, trumpet, guitar, and sometimes joins forces with the Praise Band on more contemporary anthems! 

The Emmanuel Church Choir is a people's choir that welcomes all youth and adults who love to sing!   Newcomers are always welcome.  The choir rehearses Wednesdays at 7:00 p.m. and Sundays, 9:30 a.m. Contact the church office at 782-2650 for more information.
