Immanuel ChoirMusic abounds at Immanuel! With inspired direction, the choirs are sizable, active and talented, regularly uplifting Sunday worship. A smaller group of musicians (the “Shrinemonters,” named after our Diocesan retreat center in the Shenandoah Mountains) lead more modern music at outdoor masses and fellowship events. The Bell Choir is open to anyone who understands rhythm, performing for Christmas and Easter services. A fledgling children’s choir has been reinvigorated, and has begun to sing at periodic services.
