Adult Choir

Ministry Coordinator: Kh. BethAnn Hyatt (

The St. Michael's Adult Choir helps to lead the faithful in prayer during the Divine Liturgy through music in the ancient style of Byzantine hymnography.  In order to offer our best to God, Adult Choir practices are held the 2nd and 4th Sundays of each month following the morning services.  Those who are interested in singing in the Adult Choir please contact Kh. BethAnn Hyatt.  Attendance at choir practices is necessary to participate.  Basic music reading instruction will be provided at each practice. 

Nothing so arouses the soul, gives it wings, sets it free from the earth, releases it from the prison of the body, teaches it to love wisdom and to despise all the things of this life, as concordant melody and sacred song composed in rhythm.      
+St. John Chrysostom (On Psalm 41)

How are the divine services & liturgical music chosen?

As a parish of the Antiochian Archdiocese, we follow the service rubrics (order) that are given to us each week to use for the prescribed services.  Additionally, our Metropolitan sends seasonal liturgical instructions out to his priests regarding what services to pray and any important details of how they should be served. These rubrics come from the Typikon of the Patrichate of Antioch. Regarding liturgical music, we adhere to the materials that our Antiochian Archdiocese music department provides for our parishes to use in the services.
