Under the direction of Larry J. Carey, the choir of the Peapack Reformed Church sings during the 10 a.m. worship service every Sunday, September through the beginning of June, and at special services and concerts throughout the year. Choir rehearsals are on Thursday evenings from 7:30 until 9 and on Sunday mornings at 9:15.
The choir repertoire encompasses all periods of classical music from the 16th to the 21st centuries, as well as music from Sing! A New Creation and Sing the Faith song books. From time to time there is handbell or instrumental accompaniment.
Peapack Reformed is blessed with the financial resources to hire section leaders who provide a strong vocal core for the choir and enable us to serve as a teaching church for students for students from Westminster Choir College in Princeton and from Rutgers University. This fall we welcome new members soprano Corinne Costell, a recent Westminster graduate; tenor Paul Salierno, a music education major at Rutgers; and basses Zachary Gates, a middle school teacher in East Brunswick, and Joe Haverlock, a junior at Rutgers.
Returning singers are: sopranos Rebecca Stahl and Adele Roberts; altos Destiny Cooper, Kelsey Lewis and Claire Murphy; and Nick Petroski, tenor.
