Our choir sings weekly from September through May. Adults and youth are welcome to join at any time. The choir typically rehearses from 7:30 to 9 pm on Thursdays, and then sings during the Sunday worship service. We offer a wide variety of music, including traditional choral music, spirituals, and contemporary anthems. We prepare elaborate and festive music for Christmas and Easter.
Waverly also encourages members of the community to share their talents in worship by offering opportunities for soloists, duets, and smaller ensembles to prepare and present special music both during the regular year and during the summer when the choir is in recess. These include both instrumental and vocal presentations in all musical styles. Waverly possesses a complete four-octave set of chimes.
Children and Wider Community
Our vibrant children’s education program includes music during Sunday school as well as occasional music presentations to the congregation.
As an open and welcoming community, Waverly seeks to develop and encourage the musical talents and contributions of the entire community.
