There are two ministries of music in the Orthodox Church. Chanters, and Choir members. While there are some Orthodox jurisdictions, such as the Greek Orthodox Church, which have approved the use of musical instruments (the organ), this is not the case in the Antiochian Church. All music is sung acapella, by the human voice. The chanter is one who sings hymns individually, according to the tradition of our Church, which is Byzantine musical notation. The Choir is an ensemble of voices, who usually sing only in the Divine Liturgy, and do so also according to Byzantine musical tradition. If one is blessed with a pleasant voice, and the ability to sing well, he/she should consider serving the Church in this capacity.
The St. George Choir welcomes new members to join its Ministry of Sacred Music.
