#Hymnathon 2019 – Saturday, April 27
Join our Hymnathon in which the Christ Church Choir will sing through the first stanza of all 720 hymns in our hymnal. Support the youth choristers and adult singers as they raise funds for their 2019 England Tour & upcoming domestic tour. Sponsor a singer, honor friends and family by dedicating an extra stanza of your favorite hymn or sponsor a variation on a hymn (for example youth only, clergy only, anyone over 50). A fun event for all!
We need many hands to make this Hymnathon a success. Sign up to help with everything from set-up on 4/26 to purchasing snacks & motivational prizes for the singers to cooking breakfast and arranging lunch on the day of.
Please sign up for a task and help the Christ Church Choirs continue to share beautiful music through our touring programs!

How You Can Help

- Sponsor a variation on a hymn: If you would like to have a specific group sing an additional verse of a hymn (e.g. youth only, women only, Men only, over fifty years only, members of one family only, clergy only, etc.), donate $40 and the sky’s the limit. To keep us on our schedule we have a cap of four extra verses per group of ninety hymns. Please have fun and use your imagination.
