Music at Chapel Hill UMC


The adult choirs at Chapel Hill are outstanding. Led by Dr. Randi Von Ellefson participants are able to use and develop their musical gifts to the glory of God and the appreciation of their listeners.  Choirs are open to all adults, college and older, without audition.  Rehearsals are held each Wednesday, September through May.  The choirs do not participate in worship in July and August.

Our handbell choirs perform regularly in the 8:30 and 11:00 Sunday morning worship and are available to every age group.  In addition, they make periodic appearances in the community at special events.  Reading music is necessary.  This skill is taught in our youngest handbell choir and is required at a progressive level in our choirs. Ellen Jackson directs all handbell choirs.
