The Hooksett Congregational Church is blessed to have 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 Handbell Choir
This specialty group includes about 6-8 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. The Music Committee coordinates the activities of the Handbell Choir. The church is also equipped with a super organ and an electronic Clavinova. New singers and ringers are always welcome to join. For more information about the church music program, please contact Heather at music firstname.lastname@example.org.
