St. Sava Serbian Orthodox Church
Stevan Hristich Choir
(Стеван Христић Хор)
The SSS Stevan Hristic Choir is comprised of over 30 adults who have chosen to share their gift of music with the Church. The Choir is a very active group which meets for weekly rehearsal.
“Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom, teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord.” - Colossians 3:16
Music is an integral part of the worship services in the Orthodox Church. We are proud to have a music program which provides the opportunity for people to share their talents with God. We are blessed to have a vibrant music ministry program at St. Sava Church. The beautiful voices of our choir provide for a prayerful atmosphere during the Divine Liturgy.
“Nothing elevates the soul to such a degree as divine psalmody, which give the soul wings and liberates it from worldly concerns.”
-St. John Chrysostom

The Stevan Hristich Choir is made up of members who volunteer their time and voices. Time is a precious commodity, especially in this day and age. Members of the choir give up this precious commodity to meet for Wednesday rehearsals, to prepare and sing for Divine Liturgy on Sundays, and other special rehearsals, performances, and church services.
In order to become a member, you must be 16 years old or older. It is required that you attend three (3) consecutive rehearsals, submit an application, and then be approved by the membership at a monthly meeting. Once you are voted in as a member, a $20 membership fee is required. Rehearsals are every Wednesday night from 7 p.m. - 9 p.m. Music background is not necessary. All you need is the willingness to donate a few hours a week to the church, hang out with some fun people, and create lifelong friendships.
*Note: The choir will sing for weddings, funerals, and other special services, if given ample time and notice. If you have an event, celebration, or special service you would like the choir to be a part of, please contact the church office for information on fees and costs.
