Senior Choir


FBC Senior Choir prepares worship music for Sunday services for the months of September to June, with a special feature during the Christmas Season, Carols by Candlelight, a traditional service of Lessons and Carols.  Anthem repertoire ranges from Renaissance motets, to excerpts from major choral works such as Handel’s Messiah, Haydn’s Creation, Fauré’s Requiem, and Britten’s Ceremony of Carols.  This choir specializes in commissioning and premiering choral works by emerging Halifax composers, most recently, Cy Giacomin and Ben Duinker.  FBC Senior Choir joins with St. Andrew’s United Church Choir every spring Benefit Choir Concerts for local agencies such as Phoenix and Bryony House.  In this way, the FBC Senior Choir balances community and worship leading, under the inspired direction of director, Lynette Wahlstrom.
