The Chapel Choir is the youth choir here at Fairfax United Methodist Church. It is comprised of students in seventh through twelfth grades. They sing frequently during the school year at all three worship services. The Chapel Choir often has the opportunity to participate in the Lessons and Carols services, Christmas Eve, Easter, concerts, and much more. In addition to their involvement at church, the Chapel Choir has participated in musicals, choir tours, competitions, and festivals including one at King’s Dominion. Emphasis is placed on developing vocal technique for the beginning singer.
