If you enjoy singing and camaraderie and are too grown-up to sing in Sunday School, you belong in the Peace Singers. This mixed choral ensemble strives to perform music from a variety of genres including traditional, early American, spiritual, folk, gospel, and contemporary. In addition to performing two anthems a month, the Peace Singers also perform an annual Easter Cantata. When not singing together as a choir, the members of the Peace Singers share their vocal talents as soloists, song leaders, cantors, or simply singing boldly and encouraging others during worship services. The choir rehearses Wednesday evenings from 7:00-8:00 p.m. during the school year.
Peace Lutheran’s bell choir is an intergenerational group that ranges from late elementary school age through adult. If you can count to four (sometimes six), enjoy music, and are willing to learn and practice you could be a ringer. Members who are new to ringing can start out with a simple one-bell part as the group helps them to learn music notation and ringing technique. Those looking for a challenge can take on multiple bell parts, or even try 2-in-hand techniques. Music selections are chosen based on the size and skill level of the current group members and can range from simple twelve bell arrangements to more complex arrangements that feature three octaves and utilize special ringing techniques. The Peace Ringers rehearse Wednesday evenings from 6:00-7:00 p.m. during the school year and perform an anthem once a month. Occasionally, the ringers will enhance other parts of the worship service as well. Childcare is available during rehearsals.
