German-American Chorus from the Arts Window of Zion Stained Glass Tour

The Zion Choir Today:
The Zion Choir is a mix of paid and volunteer members that practice regularly with Music Director John Heizer

History of the Zion Choir:
At one point Zion had an all paid choir and later after English services were introduced there were two choirs, one German and one English. Recent decades have allowed one adult choir that sings for both services.

The Zion Church Organ:
Music Director John Heizer shares information about the condition and plans to restore the organ.

The Zion Choir Schedule:
The Choir Schedule for the coming months is below.  

The Choir Archive of performances during the last few years is also available.
