Ψαλλώ Τώ Θεώ μου Έως Υπάρχω
I will sing to my Lord as long as I live (psalm 104:33)

The Assumption Choir consists of parishioners who have the God-given gift of a singing voice and chose to give back by sharing their gift with our community. The Choir is open to everyone who would like to join and who is willing to make the necessary time commitments. Prior musical experience is beneficial but not required.
