Youth Choir: Sing to the Lord a New Song!

Christ Church is proud to announce the revitalization of its youth choir program! Aspiring singers (that’s all of you!) ages 12-18 are invited to participate in weekly rehearsals (Mondays 5:30pm – 7:00pm, beginning Sept. 10) that will culminate in performances at occasional Sunday services and other musical happenings. This is a great opportunity for young people to learn about music, community, and fellowship, as well as deepen their appreciation for the role of music in our worship traditions.
The group will be directed by Lea Peterson, with assistance from Myra Anderson. Myra is a long-time parishioner and singer at Christ Church as well as the former leader of the youth choir program. Lea has been working at Christ Church for the past 2 years as a section leader, soloist, and occasional conductor in the adult choir. She is a freelance musician in the Boston area who frequently works with high-school-age students while also maintaining her own singing career as a classical mezzo-soprano. She began her music directing path with Rejoice! Inspirational Choir, a non-denominational gospel choir, and has a special aptitude for new religious music. Lea is passionate about
choral music of all genres, including classical, musical theatre, spiritual and folk, a cappella and chamber, and traditional gospel. She is’very excited to work with Christ Church’s young community and hopes to create a group in which mutual respect, collaboration, and desire to learn come together to make
great music.
For more information, please reach out to one of us. We look forward to bringing the youth choral tradition back to Christ Church!
