Bethany UMC Adult Choirs
Within the Music Ministries at Bethany we currently have three adult choirs, the Chancel Choir which is the largest choir of usually 45 to 50 composed of adults who enjoy singing excellent choral literature of diverse styles and genres; the Chamber Singers which is a smaller select group of 12-16, usually from the Chancel Choir, who sing primarily a cappella literature from the Renaissance through current sacred literature; and the Bethany Men’s Ensemble is a smaller group of singers, composed of men from the Chancel Choir and congregation who sing sacred men’s literature primarily in four parts. The Chancel Choir is the primary choir of the traditional services held in the sanctuary and generally at least one service each week. The Chamber Singers sing at one service per month and at special seasons such as Christmas and Easter. The Bethany Men’s Ensemble sing at least one service per month, usually the 2nd Sunday during the 8:45 service as well as singing during special seasons such as Easter and Christmas. Also, we have a new adult ensemble this fall, the Bethany Women’s Ensemble who usually sings on the first Sunday of each month during the offertory.
