St. Mark’s Choir
We are the adult choir of St. Mark’s of Geneva and we worship God with our voices. We are made up of singers from College Age 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 instruments. We rehearse on Wednesday Evenings, Sunday Morning and then 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.
