There are many opportunities for singers at Glen Mar to share their musical gifts! Primarily, our singers provide vocal and spiritual leadership in weekly worship. For special events like Choral festivals, Walk to Bethlehem, Advent Cantata, and Christmas/Easter services, Glen Mar’s choirs welcome others to enjoy some seasonal singing and blend their voices with a variety of other singers and instrumentalists. Various choral groups have served in outreach efforts at nursing homes, senior centers, “Relay for Life” events, and have traveled both locally and abroad.
