How to get Involved:
Just show up to a rehearsal! Guests should go to the registration kiosks just inside the choir room and a greeter will be there to assist you in getting your music, finding a place to sit in your voice part section, and introducing you to some new friends.

There is no audition for choir membership. Soloists and Praise Team members are auditioned from the choir.

Only a small percentage of the choir has had musical training.
Come give choir a try – no risk, no obligation.

Our goal is to seek Christ in all we do and to acknowledge the talents and opportunities we’ve been given and to give them back to Him. We want to minister through our music to our congregation and the community around us while looking for creative ways to share the Gospel through our specific talents and ministry.

To be a member of the Bellevue Baptist Church Orchestra:

  • You must be an active member of Bellevue Baptist Church.
  • You must have prior experience on your instrument.
  • You must commit and be faithful to the orchestra’s rehearsal and performance schedule.

Visitors are encouraged to participate in the orchestra rehearsals. All orchestra members are also encouraged to bring friends and visitors to orchestra rehearsal whenever possible. Visitors who are interested in joining may speak with the section leader or Orchestra Director.
