The Congregational Church of Almaden's Folk Choir provides music for one morning worship service each month,
usually the second Sunday. Our group ranges between 12 and 16 players. We have a
bass, a trombone, a saxophone, a clarinet, a trumpet, a violin, two flutes, two
recorders, two keyboards, a number of guitars, a tambourine and a zither. Our
interesting and varied sound reflects the joy we have in playing. We are often
called upon to play at special church events throughout the year and at various
retirement and rest homes in the Santa Clara Valley. Anyone who plays an
instrument is welcome to join us. We schedule two practices in the weeks prior
to our playing at the Sunday service. Please contact the church office at 268-0243.
The Joint Venture Churches Handell Choir
The bell choir is open to all, high school age and up. Ringers need a good sense of timing but are not required to be able to read music. We provide assistance in reading music and developing ringing technique. Rehearsals are currently held on Wednesday afternoons from 5:00 to 6:15 p.m. More players are always welcome. The JV Ringers play during worship on an average of once every 6 weeks.
