Fall Kick Off

Canterbury Choir Camp September 8–10

Do you know a child who likes to sing? A new season for the Canterbury Choir begins in September, and the choir is looking for new members! Open to boys and girls ages 7 to 14, the Canterbury Choir rehearses weekly on Wednesday afternoons and sings for the 10:30 a.m. service on the first Sunday of every month, from September to May.

The season begins with Canterbury Choir Camp (held at Saint Mark’s) the weekend of September 8–10. Participation in the choir offers an excellent opportunity for children to learn not only about the basics of singing and music theory but also about the    Episcopal faith and its liturgy.

The choir is open to all members of the community, regardless of religious affiliation, and there is no cost to participate. No musical background is required. For more information, click here or contact  Matthew Bester (directorofmusic@saintmarkscolumbus.org or 614-486-9452, ext. 309).
