Lifting a joyful noise unto the Lord through voice and instrument, in praise, prayer, and thanksgiving.
Adult Vocal Choir
The Adult Vocal Choir has an average membership of 45 singers. Their main focus is to provide meaningful contributions to the Sunday morning worship experience. The choir also present several concerts during the year, the most popular of which are the annual Candlelight Christmas Concerts.
The choir meets twice weekly: Wednesday evening rehearsals are from 19h30 - 21h30, including a break for coffee, tea and fellowship. On Sunday mornings there is a rehearsal at 09h45 in preparation for the service at 11h00.
To keep up with the amount of music which is prepared, membership requires either previous musical experience or a very good ear. The director can help you decide if this is the right place to put your musical talents to work.

September 2018 Auditions
Auditions for all voice types for the 2018-19 season are being held for Ensemble Lumina, an a cappella chamber choir under the direction of Caroline Drury. An auditioned, volunteer choir of the American Church in Paris, its members have several different nationalities and come from both within and outside of the ACP community. The diversity of the group lends itself well to an international blend of sacred and secular repertoire, including compositions in many different languages, written by composers from around the world and across all eras.
Ensemble Lumina has an intrinsic link between the American Chruch in Paris and the greater communities and therefore welcomes members of all faiths, both within and outside of the church community. We perform several times a year, both at the American Church in Paris and at other venues.
For an audition, please visit our website at www.ensemblelumina.fr/auditions.
