Choir

Organist: Georgia Pappas Fragale

Director: George Panagopoulos

The Saint Basil Choir is comprised of male and female voices of all ages singing in a four part harmony, and is accompanied by an organ. It sings the responses in the Divine Liturgy on Sundays and special feast days. The choir has several musical arrangements of liturgical music traditional to Byzantine music including composers Anastasiou, Bogdanos, Desby, Spathis, Revezoulis, and Kypros.

The choir rehearses every Sunday at 9:15 a.m. before liturgy for a warm up and after liturgy to quickly run through new hymns that change periodically to the ecclesiastical year.  

No prior music experience is needed to join the choir. All are welcome.

If interested, contact Father Panteleimon, the church office staff, or the choir director.

We hope to continue choir throughout the summer:)

It could potentially increase our chance of new members to the choir.

It will also bring us the opportunity to explore more musical arrangements for holidays and feast days.
