Glenn Choral Scholars

Glenn Memorial United Methodist Church has established a Choral Scholar program. Participation is open to undergraduate students by competitive audition and provides stipends of up to $1000 per academic year to successful candidates.  
 
Choral Scholars sing with the Glenn Chancel Choir for their Thursday evening rehearsals and 11:00 AM Sunday services during the academic year. They serve as section leaders, apprenticed to the Glenn artist singing staff.  Choral Scholars receive vocal coaching from the artist staff and sing solos for the 8:30 and 11:00 AM services on designated occasions.

The Chancel Choir, composed of volunteers and professionals, offers the finest sacred literature with professional performance standards.  With Timothy Albrecht organist, artist level soloists, and Steven Darsey as Music Director, the Glenn Choir offers a rich learning, performing, and worship experience for all singers.
