Chancel Choir

Rehearsals on 1st & 3rd Thursdays, 7:00pm

 

The Chancel Choir of Fairfax Church is our traditional adult choir, participating weekly during the Sunday 9:30am worship service. The Chancel Choir performs a wide range of works from classical favorites to contemporary masterpieces. Open to singers of all abilities, the Chancel Choir presents concerts of special music throughout the year. New participants are always welcome, and an audition is not required. During this time of COVID-19, the Chancel Choir is meeting only the 1st and 3rd Thursday of each month at 7:00pm in the Sanctuary. The choir is rehearsing music for in-person and online worship services.

George Mason Chancel Choir Singers

 

Fairfax Church is fortunate to be a partner with George Mason University and have four auditioned singers in our choir. These singers enhance our worship service by singing in the Chancel Choir as well as singing as a special quartet. Auditions are conducted each August and the commitment is for the school year from September through May.

 


All of our groups practice safe protocols using masks, safe distancing and other precautions as appropriate.

Bellissimo Ringers

Rehearsal Wednesdays, 7:00-8:15pm

 

Handbell music is a rich part of Music Ministry at Fairfax! Our ringers participate several times throughout the year in worship and frequently are a part of concerts, festivals, and workshops. This group places a strong emphasis on developing technique for all levels of ability from beginners to highly experienced ringers. The group rings for in person worship about once a month and has developed two smaller ensembles from this group that ring in worship too. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the group is still rehearsing safely at 7pm on Wednesday evenings in Room 216.

Youth Handbells Choir

Grades 7-12

All youth  are invited on Sunday evenings from 5:15 to 6:00pm to ring bells. Although it is helpful, it doesn’t matter if you can read music. The group meets in the Choir Room. Each student is assigned their own table and is not sharing bells and tables are placed 6 or more feet apart. Please wear your mask. Hope to see you and bring a friend! If interested, please contact Amy Moir or phone 703-591-3120 x117.
