Our Music Director/Administative Assistant, Diane Carrouth who is a classically trained pianist and cellist has been involved in various aspects of music from performing in a variety of ensembles, to teaching private lessons to having formerly served as the Music Director at Concord Christian Church and Music and Art Teacher at Back Creek Christian Academy. She just started working with the fantastic choir at Memorial UMC and is excited for the direction this ministry is taking! We are always looking for new members who love to sing and create beautiful music.
The Memorial UMC Chancel Choir is a skilled group of vocalists with decades of experience performing together. New anthems are shared with the congregation each week in our Sunday morning services, with live piano or organ accompaniment. The choir also provides special music every Christmas and Easter with the addition of accomplished instrumentalists from the Charlotte area.
Our Chancel Choir was honored in 2017 with an invitation to perform at Carnegie Hall.
Weekly rehearsals take place in the choir room on Thursdays at 7:00 pm.
Our handbell choir is currently on hold, until new players can be recruited. Memorial UMC has a 5 octave set of Malmark Handbells, as well as a lovely set of handchimes. We need performers!
