Our Chapel Choir is comprised of approximately two dozen members, most of whom are volunteers but some of whom are professional section leaders, and others are recipients of our Chapel music scholarships. The choir is directed by Dr. Marilyn Michael. Dr. Michael is also the primary organist and pianist. She is assisted by Flo Bickel on organ and piano.
Our amazing section leaders include: Andrea Rose, soprano; Shirley VanFossen, alto; Jared Acuff, tenor; and Jim Abegglen, baritone. Our current scholarship recipients are Charlie Tsai, Kodey Beard, and Lee Tong.
Now is the perfect time for you to join the Chapel Choir! Rehearsals for Chapel Choir are on Wednesdays from 7:00 to 8:00 p.m. (seasonally) and Sunday morning at 9:15 a.m. You do not need to be a trained singer to participate in the Chapel Choir.
You will have lots of help from the choir section leaders and you will be given a music CD of the upcoming choral anthems. The commitment of time and rehearsal is on an individual basis, and you will be welcomed with open arms and beautiful music! Please consider joining us! Every voice, no matter how big or small, contributes greatly to the music ministry of Chapel-By-The-Sea. If you have any questions, contact the Music Director, Dr. Marilyn Michael.
