Parish Choir

The cornerstone of the music program at Christ Church is the twenty-member Parish Choir, directed by Gary Van Essen.  Made up of a combination of trained and amateur musicians, the choir performs a variety of modern and classic choral repertoire for the weekly 10 a.m. worship service and for concerts and special events.  Some of the choir’s favorite composers include John Ness Beck, John Rutter, Craig Courtney and Dan Forrest.

The choir is open to high school students and adults, without audition.  Contact Gary Van Essen, Minister of Music (music@ccpki.org) for more information.

 Praise Band

The praise band plays for our worship service from time to time.  Currently our band consists of drums, bass, piano, trumpet, and flute.  New members are welcome to play instruments or sing.
