The Thurman Choir: Marsh Chapel’s Common Voice

In the spirit of Dean Howard Thurman’s visionary ministry of a ‘common ground’, The Thurman Choir is open to any and all members of the Marsh Chapel family who wish to lift their voice in song, as a community of common faith. No audition or previous experience is required, and a multi-generational experience is encouraged.

In addition to an engaging repertoire, members of the Thurman Choir will learn fundamental vocal and musical skills, including hymn singing, music reading, and a healthy approach to singing.
