The Sanctuary Choir is for ages 18 and beyond. We sing each week during worship, collaborate with other choirs for special services or events, and have worked together to create virtual choral experiences. We sing a wide variety of music from simple to challenging, which keeps our brains working and on our toes. If you can carry a tune and have a heart for singing, we would love for you to join us – no formal choral experience required! Travis Park Church strives towards an inclusive and affirming music community. Any time is a great time to join, just come to rehearsal and we’ll get a folder together for you.
The Sanctuary Choir meets for rehearsal weekly. Contact Caroline Collins for more information.
With a high energy approach to the contemporary Christian genre, our band leads worship every Sunday morning with engaging and vibrant songs. We choose music with meaningful and inclusive messages to facilitate an atmosphere of worship. Musicians play piano, guitar, bass, drums, and sax. Lyrics come alive with the vocal ensemble and worship leader.
If you are interested in learning more or auditioning to join the team, please contact Andrew Hubbard.

Emmaus Singers Youth Choir
The Emmaus Singers is our youth choir for youth ages 6th grade – 12th grade (ages 11-18). Emmaus Singers perform during worship once a month and each summer we go on a week-long choir tour. Choir tours have taken us to Atlanta, St. Louis, the Texas panhandle, New Orleans, Chicago, west Texas, and more. We sing as well as play instruments such as the ukulele.* Students who play other instruments that they have learned through school or private lessons also have opportunities to perform with the choirs and as soloists.* For more information, contact Caroline Collins.
*You must provide your own instrument.
Joyful Noise! Children’s Choir
Come make a Joyful Noise! with the Children’s Choir (ages 2 through 5th grade). Joyful Noise! performs in worship once a month. We have opportunities for all ages to sing together as well as opportunities for older and younger children to sing separately. We have social events throughout the year in order to help build community and lasting relationships for participants. Each spring we put on a Children’s Musical that fosters leadership and ownership. We truly try to give children an opportunity to express their gifts and shine during worship and rehearsals! Travis Park Church strives towards an inclusive and affirming music community. Joyful Noise! rehearses on Sunday mornings. For more information, contact Caroline Collins.
