I will sing with the spirit and with the understanding also
Ultimately, being a member of the Metropolitan United Church Choir School means being a highly trained and engaged singer! Members of MUCCS rehearse, perform and travel regularly. They sing some of the world's most exciting music, in some of its most beautiful settings and its in most meaningful contexts. Choristers participate by:
- Rehearsing: The expectation is that all Choir School members will attend a minimum of two rehearsal weekly. Our flexible rehearsal schedule makes it possible to pick and choose the days that work for you each week:
- Singing: The Choristers sing on the first and third Sunday of each month (September to May) for Metropolitan's 11 AM service.They also participate in Met's monthly rotation of choral evensong services, which take place once per month on Sunday afternoons at 3 PM . The highlight of the year for everyone is our annual Service of Nine Lessons and Carols on the Friday evening before Christmas each year.
- Travel: Choristers travel locally to perform throughout the year and undertake a longer trip annually.
- Meet Remarkable Musicians: The Choristers have a chance each year to work with famous conductors each year!
