"I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever; with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations." -- Psalm 89:1
The church choir is an open, welcoming, diverse group and an integral part of spiritual wellbeing of the parish. The SMMTC Choir plays an indispensable role in the church services and programs. We assist the Achen for all the Sunday services with the chants and worship songs, making the service a more divine experience for the congregation and add beauty to the worship service.
The choir has a variety of responsibilities. Their primary role is to support and enhance the congregation in singing worship songs. Their visual presence is an encouragement to the congregation as well. The Choir also participates for other programs of the Church and take part for choir festivals & ecumenical programs. The two main programs of the church, that are conducted by the choir every year are - The Easter Recital and The Christmas Carol Service.
Our church comprises of two choirs; The Senior Choir with 84 auditioned members and the Junior Choir with all children aged 3 to 13. The choir is a platform for members of the parish, with a talent for singing, to help develop and improve their musical gifts. The choir meets for rehearsal every Friday, where we do voice training, learn music harmony and practice songs. We also have many talented accompanists, to support the choral singing.
