Second Sunday of each month | before 6:00 pm Evensong
This is a smaller ensemble drawn from the Adult Choir membership, offering Evensong on the second Sunday of every month during the program year. Evening prayer is the time when the church gathers to give thanks for the day that is ending, and Evensong is an expression of this, unique to the Anglican tradition and a treasure of our church’s heritage.

Sundays | before the 10:30 am services, during the summer months
The Summer Choir is a great opportunity for members of the congregation with limited time to contribute to the musical life of the church! The Summer Choir sings and leads worship through the summer months (June-August). It is open to singers in middle school age and older, and no experience is necessary. Singers are encouraged to participate as often as their schedule allows. For more information or to join please contact Chris Oelkers
WOODLAND PICK-UP CHOIR
Every other Sunday
Our Pick-up Choir performs every other Sunday. Singers receive the music in advance and practice morning-of to keep things simple. This is a small-time commitment that delivers great joy – there’s a reason so many of our regular attendees have become Pick-Up Choir members! For more information or to join please contact Chris Oelkers
CHOIR FOR CHILDREN
CHILDREN'S CHOIR: 2nd GRADE OR OLDER

A vision for Children's Music at Good Shepherd:
The Episcopal Church of the Good Shepherd has a long history of excellence in music, and the nurturing of music for our children and young people has become a top priority for us. Our goal is to create a program for our children which offers a global approach, integrating music theory, history, and the physiology of singing with their choral training, at a developmentally appropriate level. For this reason, we have affiliated with The Royal School of Church Music (RSCM), the premier organization dedicated primarily to voice training for children. The RSCM offers a graded, multi-level choral program with well-defined progress markers and a system of rewards for achievement. Their program, called Voice for Life, covers all aspects of individual and choral singing, and we’ll start implementing the program this coming September.
