The Saint Nicholas Choir helps lead the entire congregation in the enriching spiritual worship of the Divine Liturgy. The spiritual legacy of our venerable service calls us to lift our voices in praise of our God, and instills in all of us a feeling of personal fulfillment.
The Choir opens its arms to all parishioners to join and be a part of the beautiful services that are offered in our church. A chorale group chants new ecclesiastical music on a monthly schedule.

The Choir of St. Nicholas is dedicated to serving our Lord by chanting the liturgical hymns and responses with a humble heart filled with the Holy Spirit and the Love and Joy of Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.
Our current and continual goal is to increase our membership, with a special encouragement of participation of our youth. We strive to continually improve our sound for the glorification of God, and to make participation in worshiping the Lord as beautiful as possible.
We encourage members to participate in the activities of the National Forum of Greek Orthodox Church Musicians (NFGOCM) and the Eastern Federation of Greek Orthodox Church Musicians (EFGOCM) of the New Jersey Metropolis, including participation in the annual Liturgy of the Holy Cross in Asbury Park, as well as special Lenten and Christmas concerts of the EFGOCM.
