Opportunities to join our music ministry

Dr. Jeremy Fox rehearses his Jazz Mass with the All Saints’ choir.

The Parish Chorale is comprised of members, nonmembers and friends of All Saints’ Church and St. George’s Chapel. The Parish Chorale sings for special services beyond regular Sunday morning masses such as the Jazz Mass, Advent Lessons and Carols, Epiphany Lessons and Carols and the Good Friday service.  The rehearsals are on Sundays following the 10 am service at All Saints’ Church.  St. George’s Chapel choir meets at 8:30 am in the Chapel choir loft. In summertime (June-August) the All Saints’ Church choir gathers at 9:15 am on Sunday mornings. All are welcome!  In September the choir begins work on the annual Jazz Mass, an event performed during the Rehoboth Beach Jazz Festival in October.

There are many opportunities to sing with the choir during the year even if you are not able to commit year round.

The Hand Bell Choir performs on special occasions throughout the year.  Rehearsals are Thursdays at 4 pm, St. George’s.  No experience is necessary to become a member-just an interest in fellowship and a willingness to learn!

Summer Choir is open to anyone that would like to sing but didn’t have the time before! Beginning May 31st, All Saint’s Church Summer Choir will meet Sundays at 9 am , in the choir room, to sing for the 10 am service. St. George’s Chapel Summer Choir will meet Sundays at 8:30 am, in the choir loft, to sing for the 9:30 am service.
