Congregational Church of Hooksett

Music

Hooksett UCC Choir 2016The Hooksett Congregational Church is blessed to have three choir groups that share the gift of music with the congregation:

The Chancel Choir/Senior Choir

The Chancel Choir includes about 20 enthusiastic singers who rehearse one night a week during the choir season, September to June, as well as on Sunday mornings before the worship service. The group sings both standard tunes and contemporary music, and is committed to enhancing the worship service through song.

The Children’s Choir

The Children’s Choir rehearses on Sunday mornings before worship services, as needed. The Children’s Choir rehearses in November and December for our annual Church Christmas Pageant, which is held during one of our Advent worship services. The Children’s Choir also rehearses in April and May to sing at the worship services on Mother’s Day and Children‘s Sunday. The Children’s Choir occasionally joins the Chancel Choir for special anthems during the Choir Season.

 The Handbell choir

This specialty group includes about 10 – 12 ringers, who play a three-octave set of handbells and a two-octave set of melody chimes. The group plays two or three times a year and rehearses for a month before each performance.

The Church Choir Director, Heather Bridges, chooses the music selections for the Chancel Choir and the Children’s Choir. The Music Committee coordinates the activities of the Handbell Choir. The church is also equipped with a super organ and an electronic piano, both played by the church’s Organist, the very talented Michelle Jaques. New singers and ringers are always welcome to join.
