Music in Worship Choirs

A Music in Worship choir is one that finds its primary home in any faith-based institution. Choirs in this category are predominantly filled with adults but also include youth choirs and children's choirs. Unlike any other choral music genre, the goal of the music in worship choir is not only designed to musically educate but to spiritually enhance.
