Music & Choir
Music is a moral law. It gives soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination, and charm and gaiety to life and to everything.
Music is a very important part of who we are. Our “pop-up” choir continues to delight and fill the chapel with music each Sunday. If you love to sing, please consider joining us for rehearsals weekly at 9:00am-9:45am, prior to our Sunday services. If you are interested in singing with the choir, please speak with Jess Huetteman, our Music Director. You don’t need to be in the choir to sing! … Together we join our voices each Sunday!
Our Music Director:
Soprano Jessica Huetteman is an active singer, voice teacher, and church musician who firmly believes in serving others through music. Originally from Rhode Island, Jessica received her Master of Music in Voice Performance and Pedagogy with distinction from Westminster Choir College of Rider University in May 2019. During her time at Westminster, Jessica appeared on the stages of Carnegie Hall, Verizon Hall, the Forbidden City Concert Hall (Beijing), the National Centre for the Performing Arts (Beijing), and Charleston Gaillard Center. Though she is a classically trained singer, Jessica enjoys listening to and performing a wide range of styles, including jazz, bluegrass, and electronic music. It is her goal to introduce and expose others to a variety of repertoire, especially music written by women, LGBTQ+, Latinx, and African American composers. Jessica also holds a Bachelor of Arts in Music and Psychology from UMass Amherst. In addition to performing and directing, she teaches voice lessons at the RI Philharmonic Music School in East Providence, RI. Jessica is thrilled to join the Bell Street Chapel community!
