Chancel Choir


The Dove of Peace Chancel Choir sings three to four times a month from Labor Day to Memorial Day. During the season, rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 6:30 p.m.

Now seeking new singers! Our congregation is nearing the completion of our pipe organ expansion project, which will make it one of the largest in the city. Consequently, Dove’s Chancel Choir, which regularly performs with the organ, and its acclaimed organist, UA Professor of Organ Pamela Decker, is looking to expand by an octet of dedicated volunteer singers: 2 of each voice part.

Led by Grammy-nominated conductor of True Concord Voices & Orchestra, Eric Holtan, Dove’s volunteer Chancel Choir presents anthems of the first rank from the sacred American and European traditions most Sundays, and regularly collaborates with True Concord’s musicians in presenting larger works at least twice each year.

Interested candidates should have strong, clear voices and possess good music-reading skills. Inquiries can be made with Eric at 520.887.5127 or ericholtan@gmail.com.
