Adult Music

At Plymouth Church, choral music has a history of excellence and remains a central part of the church’s music ministry. If the Chancel Choir’s trademark is its “Plymouth Red” robes, its hallmark is music that delights the ear, touches the heart, and stirs the soul.

Chancel Choir

The Chancel Choir values its diversity and inclusiveness. Singers are musical professionals and novices, married and single, the young and not so young—all united by a love of music, singing and friendship, as well as a spiritual commitment to leading Sunday morning worship.

The purpose of Chancel Choir is to further the ministry of the church by serving as Sunday morning worship leaders; to serve each other through actions of care, concern and support; to offer our gifts and talents to sustain God’s spirit in the world; and to continue to grow musically, vocally, and spiritually through challenging and distinguished choral literature.
