Adult ChoirMusic Programs

Music plays an important part in the life and worship of the Congregational Church of Brookfield. Our music ministry offers a variety of opportunities for members to express and share their faith through music.

We have four singing choirs and three handbell choirs. Our singing choirs begin with preschool children and continue through adults. Our handbell choirs begin in fourth grade and play 5 octaves of Schulmerich bells and 3 octaves of handchimes.

           


Chancel Choir (Rehearsals: Thursdays, 7:30-9:00)

The Chancel Choir provides musical leadership at our 10:30 worship services from September through June. The Chancel Choir is open to high school students and adults. It sings a wide variety of repertoire and styles.

All interested singers are invited to come and sing. 


Joyful Noise Choir (Rehearsals: Wednesdays, 4:00-4:30)

                                                      

For 4 year olds and children in kindergarten.  This choir is a wonderful opportunity for your children to learn about music, to discover their singing voices, to learn how to keep the beat and how to put it all together as they make their joyful noises.  This choir incorporates lots of movement and games.  They sing occasionally in church.  The main emphasis is to get started in music, and to learn about God through music.  

 


Cherub Choir (Rehearsals: Wednesdays, 4:30-5:00)

                                                        

For children in grades 1-3:  The children continue adding to their musical skills; learning about their singing voices, matching pitch, keeping the beat.  We talk about the words of anthems we sing and help them learn about God through the medium of music.  The children enjoy playing rhythm instruments and Orff instruments.  They sing in church approximately every 6 weeks.


Alleluia Choir (Rehearsals: Wednesdays, 5:00-6:15)

                                                            

For children in grades 4-8.  The choir begins to sing 2 part music.  They participate in a choir festival sponsored by Choristers Guild, led by a nationally recognized director.  We continue to learn about God by exploring the messages and words of the anthems we sing.  They begin to take on a more active role in leading worship in our church.  They sing in church about once a month.  The Alleluia Choir spends 45 minutes with singing activities and 30 minutes ringing bells.
