Festival of Voices
The Festival of Voices is looking for motivated volunteer singers who believe passionately in the power of music to shape worship and transform lives. Under the leadership of Kenneth Dake, the Festival of Voices presents a broad range of choral repertoire in worship each month and in concerts throughout the year. Wednesday evenings’ high-energy rehearsals leave people feeling inspired and challenged. One half-day retreat provides fun, fellowship, and deeper exploration of inspiring texts and soul-stirring harmony. The nurturing and supportive community of the choir offers a vital spiritual resource and forges lasting relationships with others on the journey.
Rehearsals are held Wednesday evenings, and the choir is featured in an annual Advent Concert and in the Good Friday liturgy. Potential volunteers should be able to read music and commit to regular attendance. Contact Ken Dake, at (212) 686-2770 for information on how you can become a member of this ministry.

Marble Children Choirs
Our youth learn to communicate God’s message through song and worship services, church functions and special events.
The Church School Choir program is designed to develop, from a very early age, the music skills and sense of spirituality that are an integral part of Christian choral singing. Song, rhythm, and musical instruments are key elements of the Toddler music class. Youngsters are then guided through individual choirs according to their age. Each choral experience offers children the opportunity to further their musical abilities and deepen their faith through song.
Cherub Choir: Pre-K to 1st Grade
Marble’s first choir experience is planned to provide a foundation in singing. This foundation includes learning to sing on pitch and within a slight range, singing in a group and following musical cues.
Children’s Choir: 2nd Grade to 6th Grade
Our children’s next choir experience continues building on their foundation with an additional focus on vocal techniques and breath support.
Choir rehearsals are an integral part of every Sunday morning. In this way, our children are provided with the opportunity of experiencing and worshiping God through music. Both choirs sing in Family Worship, the sanctuary and at special events during the year.
