The Amabile Choir of Bainbridge Island, founded in 2013, is a mixed-voice ensemble of 55-plus singers from Bainbridge Island and the Kitsap Peninsula. The choir’s members range in age from teenagers to retirees – all music lovers who enjoy singing. From its founding, Amabile’s purpose has been to express love of music through choral singing. The Amabile Choir provides musical education and choral performance fostering a genuine love of singing with a clear understanding of the value of music in people’s lives. Amabile draws from an eclectic repertoire including classical, international, jazz and religious works. Amabile aims to provide meaningful cultural experiences for the community. It performs two concerts annually, in late spring, then during the holiday season, in the beautiful St. Barnabas sanctuary, which the church generously provides in keeping with its own spiritual commitment to community service.
