Forest Hill offers six outstanding choirs and small ensembles, under the direction of Music Director and Organist Anne Wilson.
Our all-volunteer Chancel Choir has a reputation for musical excellence as well as fellowship, fun, and a spiritual commitment to glorifying God through music. Members rehearse weekly on Thursday evenings, September through May. They provide weekly* worship music and anthems and participate in many special events.
Sine Nomine Choir
The youth (grades 6 – 12, college students warmly welcomed) in this choir named it Sine Nomine, Latin for “no name.”
Don’t be fooled by the young ages of the singers–this group tackles challenging music and always delights.
They rehearse twice a month after church and sing regularly in worship.*
Listen as they sing the Advent carol He Will Come When We’re Least Expecting Him
This popular children’s choir features children in grades 1 – 5. They rehearse every Sunday morning at 9:30am* in the sanctuary and sing regularly in worship.Their performances invariably are energetic and well-received. Listen as they perform a Forest Hill favorite: All God’s Critters Got a Place in the Choir
Our pre-school choir sings for the pure joy of making music. One Sunday a month they meet from 10:15-11:00am* for a time of singing, moving, playing musical instruments, and having fun making music.
Led by member Beth Zych, the Cherub Choir sings during worship a few times a year.
All choirs take a break during the summer months. The robes come off and anyone who wants can show up early for a quick run-through with Anne Wilson before our Summer 10:00am worship The singers give it their all, singing easy-to-learn pieces and getting a taste of what being in a church choir is about. The music gets a little jazzier at times, like this wonderful ragtime Gloria led by member Clayton Minder. (Not surprisingly, come fall every year, several summer participants decide to continue year-round.)*
A variety of small choral and instrumental ensembles enliven and enrich the dance of worship at Forest Hill.
Voices in Bronze
The Voices in Bronze Handbell Choir practices weekly on Thursday evenings and performs several times a year.
Forest Hill Steel Drum Band
This group, for all ages, plays for worship several times per year. Up to six people at a time can play and the players are always changing. Rehearsals are arranged at the convenience of the players and take place around three weeks before the performance.
