St. Mark’s Choir

We are the choir of St. Mark’s of Geneva and we worship God with our voices. We are made up of singers from middle school through senior citizens, from amateurs to professionals and we welcome all who have a voice with which to praise God. The choir sings in many musical styles including Classical, Spirituals, and Contemporary music accompanied by the Ott Tracker Pipe Organ, a grand piano, and various other instruments. We rehearse on Wednesday Evenings from 7:00-8:30, Sunday Mornings at 8:00, and  sing for the 9:00 and 10:30 services. We also sing for a variety of festivals including Christmas Eve, Easter and Holy Week services.

St. Mark's Children's Choir - Second through Eighth Grades

Learn songs of praise about the Lord! The Children's Choir raise their voices in worship while leading the congregation throughout the service, usually on the first Sunday of the month. They fill their spirits with the joy of music during rehearsals on Sundays at 10:45-11:10. Come join this happy band of singers in singing the praises of God!

We hope to resume Children's Choir as soon as Covid mandates are lifted and as vaccines become available for younger children.
