Metropolis of Chicago Church Music Federation


Metropolis of Chicago Church Music Federation


We are choir members and chanters who represent the majority of churches within our Metropolis. Our effort as a Federation is to make available to you – the chanter, the choir singer, the director, the organist – an organization in which you may network, share ideas,  ask questions and more, all for the purpose of enriching our liturgies.  We make a difference to those participating in our services…to our parishioners…to those officiating….even to the non-Orthodox visitor.

New members – of every age – are welcome to join our choirs, initiate choirs, begin youth choirs, and more.  The Federation Board joins me in voluntarily serving our Metropolis in support of our church musicians.

This website will provide you with an overview of our efforts.  We welcome all feedback that will help us to help you find the answers you are seeking.

Note to our visitiors:  We continue in our attempts to keep this website current; however it is not always possible.  Therefore if there are any questions you cannot find the answer to, please contact:  Ruth E. Faklis, President
