Welcome to Music in the Orchard!

choir05

Our music program is always changing and growing!  We present music to the glory of God from the Middle Ages to contemporary music that has been written especially for us.  Our choir is a very dedicated group.  We never stop looking for new members to welcome to our fold.  (There’s ALWAYS room for one more!)
