The Church of Holy Resurrection is blessed to have three choirs that regularly partake in the Divine Liturgy (Soorp Badarak) by providing beautiful voices that sing the hymns (sharagans) and liturgical music.
Loosavorich Church Choir
The Loosavorich Choir was established in 1988 and participates monthly in the Divine Liturgy (Soorp Badarak) as well as on major feast days.
The Choir consists of twenty members most of whom are dedicated, long-serving members of the church community. It welcomes parishioners of mature age and all musical abilities to join them.
The Loosavorich Choir is conducted by Deacon Vartan Elmasian.
Vartanants Church Choir
Formerly known as the youth choir, the Vartanants Church Choir reformed in 2013 and now consists of adults both young and older who share a love for singing and are keen to learn the choral parts of the Divine Liturgy to partake meaningfully in the worship service.
The Choir provides the choral accompaniment to the Badarak regularly each month. Weekly practice sessions are conducted at the Church on a week night and new members are warmly welcome.
The Vartanants Choir is conducted by Deacon Vartan Elmasian.
Karasoun Mangounk Youth Choir
The Karasoun Mangounk Choir was established in 2005 as a Children’s Choir and is open to children aged 7 years onward who enjoy singing and are willing to learn the liturgical hymns. The Choir partakes in the Divine Liturgy on the last Sunday of each month and is supported by older choir members who continue to bring their participation and lead younger members. As the children have grown with the choir and have maintained their membership, the Karasoun Mangounk Choir is now known as the Youth Choir.
The Karasoun Mangounk Choir is conducted by Deacon Vartan Elmasian.
