Junior Choir

The Junior Choir welcomes youth who are interested in offering their voices as part of liturgical worship, to the glory of God!  We chant a cappella (without instrumental accompaniment) using the Byzantine style (melody with ison, the drone note) and use English translations of the Greek.  We   rehearse on alternating Fridays at 6:30 p.m. and lead congregational singing at the  Sunday School "Youth Liturgies," in the Hellenic Room.  We also have been  welcomed to chant each year on Palm  Sunday and Good Friday in the Cathedral Center, as well as the Agape Service on Pascha, chanting "Christos Anesti" in many languages.  Additionally, in recent years we have contributed English chanting   during Paraklesis, Vespers, the Akathist Hymn and the Great Compline.

Alongside the study of hymnology and the Byzantine Tones, we use rehearsal time to learn Orthodox folk songs (with guitar), camp songs, songs/hymns of the Kenyan Orthodox and OCA and we harmonize just for fun.  We are a loving and friendly group and hope you will feel free to join us at any time!
