- Festival Chorale: A great entry point for vocalists is the Festival Chorale and does not require an audition. The Festival Chorale offers a flexible rehearsal schedule, utilizing both weeknights and Saturday mornings to give participants several options. The Chorale presents their music on two Festival Sundays—Christmas and Easter.
- Vocal Ensemble: The Vocal Ensemble leads worship every 3-4 weeks during the Fall, Winter, and Spring seasons. This group of Singers rehearses weekly on Tuesdays at 7 pm. Participation for new members requires an interview.
- Worship Leading Team Vocalist: To sing in the smaller worship leading teams will require an interview and audition. After participating in the Vocal Ensemble for a season (typically 3-4 months), you can schedule an appointment with the Director of Worship Arts to explore this opportunity.
- Worship Band: Instrumentalists who play piano, keys, guitar (acoustic/electric/bass), drum kit, and/or percussion are invited to schedule an interview and audition with the Director of Worship Arts. Typically, these players are scheduled once or twice a month as part of the Worship Leading Teams.
- Orchestra (sections): Periodically, we schedule different sections to be part of Sunday morning worship. On Festival Sundays we assemble all the orchestra sections to accompany the Festival Chorale. Participation in the orchestra sections will require an interview and audition. Sections: strings (Violin, Viola, Cello, String Bass), woodwinds (Flute, Oboe, Clarinet, Saxophone). brass (Trumpet, Trombone, French Horn)
