The Chancel Choir sings on the first and third Sundays of the month with rehearsals scheduled at 8:00 am on the mornings the choir sings.

The Ecumenical Advent-Christmas Cantata Choir

During selected years, the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Eagle River sponsors an Advent – Christmas Cantata, “Let Us Have Music for Christmas!.”

The diverse performances include either a virtual or in-person choir, including a piano duet and readings that will take you on a journey describing the birth of Jesus and culminating with our contemporary celebration of Christmas.

The music and readings were compiled and are directed by Lori Hunter, Director of Music, with the skillful technical contributions of Alex Fluegel. Norma Yaeger is the principal accompanist and Linda Brainard joins her at the piano for a delightful piano duet. The Chime Choir is directed by Susan Krivichi. Dale Bishop often accompanies the choir with flute for A Celtic Advent Carol. Barb Helmick and Doug Malinsky are the featured narrators. Performance is always dictated by COVID protocols and precautions.

Vocal and instrumental soloists are also sometimes featured in worship.

Performance Arts Series – Music, drama, readers’ theatre, and other opportunities for artistic expression are available through the annual Performing Arts Series sponsored by our congregation. These performances feature local talent. Information on current offerings will be posted on this website as they are scheduled.
