Chancel Choir rehearsals are Wednesday evenings at 7:30 p.m., September through May. Rehearsals are structured to accommodate those who sing by ear to those with exceptional musicianship skills.
The Chancel Choir is the backbone and flagship of our Sunday music worship experience. The choir is a wonderful opportunity to share your singing talents to both enrich your life and the lives of those touched by the beautiful music you create. A wide variety of music is selected for our services, reaching out to all generations, maintaining tradition as well as incorporating modern musical forms into our programming. Our music is chosen not only for melodies but for the spiritual impact, the text has on our lives.
Bells of Peace
Bells of Peace rehearsals are Wednesday evenings at 6:30 p.m., September through May. Bell ringing is a wonderful way to express beautiful music and the traditions of our faith and hymns. It is also a great way to learn basic music theory to enhance your musicianship skills. The term “It takes a village,” truly applies here. Bell ringing is the epitome of teamwork. The Bells of Peace offers opportunities to develop new friendships and enhance your musicianship. Come ring out the love!
The Desert Palm music department is developing musical and theatrical programming for our children, Kindergarten through 6th grade. The goal is to establish two Children’s Choirs (age groups K – 2nd grade & 3rd – 6th grade) developing and utilizing their musical and theatrical skills during worship service and to present a stand-a-lone musical in both the fall and spring. The focus will be on spiritual and faith values. Music and the arts are invaluable to a child’s development of life skills. Parental involvement and youth/adult volunteers are necessary to produce a high-quality program that provides children with spiritual and personal enrichment.
The Ukulele Club meets the first Saturday of each month. No experience necessary – all are welcome! Many of our members had not previously played a musical instrument before joining. The Ukulele Club has represented Desert Palm in parades and has played at church services and other events. We have fun, and our music practice has benefits for all of us in addition to the great camaraderie we have developed. Long live the small but mighty ukulele!
