I joined the Chancel Choir a few months after joining the church when I moved to Atlanta. I grew up singing and playing handbells in a large Methodist church that had a strong music program, like Peachtree Road.
For me, choral music enhances the meaning and amplifies the emotion of sacred texts and prayers, enriching worship. I knew I needed to join the choir to deepen my worship experience.
Our choir includes many different people, different ages and personalities with different voices and levels of training and experience. It is the effort and care we put into the music every week which binds us into a community. We work hard, laugh a lot, pray for each other and make lasting friendships.
Dan & I met in the choir, our three children have spent their lives singing in the children’s and youth choirs, and we look forward to having them join us in the Chancel Choir someday! It is where we feel most at home at Peachtree Road.
