The Chancel Choir is the choir of the Chalice Unitarian Universalist Congregation in Escondido, CA.

Chancel Choir 2014

The main function of the choir is to lead music in the church’s services. The choir sing a wide range of music taking in music from the world church and secular concert items. Smaller groups often perform special music at services and other functions.

We are a mixed group of around 30 members; new members are always welcome. The choir is an active social body and we hold a number of social events each year for the whole choir.

Schedule and Location

The choir practices one night a week during the September through June. We meet on Thursday evening from 7:30 pm until 9:00 pm at During construction at our Chalice, 2324 Miller Ave. campus, we will meet at the Temple Adat Shalom in Poway (15905 Pomerado Rd., Poway CA 92064).

In addition to the choir practice, choir members are provided with Finale Reader and Finale music files that can be played on the computer for practice at home. The intention is that you first learn your part using the individual part file, and then practice it with the all parts file to get used to singing your part with the other parts and accompaniment going on at the same time. We’ve been doing this for over a decade, and it works great!
