Piano Ensemble

With the vaccine distribution reaching more people and us returning to the sanctuary in April, Pacific Hills will begin having music ensemble rehearsals again. All who have interest are welcome to join either the bell choir or choir!

Due to COVID, please use your own judgment/comfort in your call to rejoin/ join. Masks will be worn during rehearsals and during service. Once we return to the sanctuary, choir members will be spread out throughout the balcony to follow social distancing. Until then, we will rehearse in Acker Hall spread out.

Choir will rehearse on Sundays from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m. in Acker Hall until we return to the sanctuary, which we will then be in the balcony. Please contact me if you have interest in joining or feel free to pop in at a rehearsal!

Bell Choir currently rehearses Wednesdays from 7:45 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. in Acker Hall during Lent and will find a new time as a group to rehearse after Holy Week, which will be added to the church calendar. Please contact me if you have interest in joining or feel free to pop in at a rehearsal!

As always, soloists and groups are welcome at any time! Feel free to contact me so we can work something out!

Upon return to the sanctuary, we will also begin having cantors for the services. If you have any interest or curiosity, please contact me so I may add you to a cantor group and we can work out scheduling Sundays! The more cantors the better!
