The Seattle Laestadian Lutheran Church Choir (SLLC) has met for over 25 years now!
Welcome to our choir page! We are a Christmas Church Choir and meet in the Fall on Mondays from September through December, culminating in our annual Christmas recital. Directed by Ingrid Ojala and accompanied by Stephanie Westerinen, the adult choir learns both acapella and accompanied sacred carols and hymns. We sing primarily in English, but often Spanish, Finnish and Swedish carols are performed as well. Our youth choir (grades 4th-8th), directed by Saara Olli and assisted by Ina Loukusa, sings in addition to the adult choir at the annual Christmas Recital, adding much joy to our season's evening of Christmas in song. Many years we also have an instrumental group, directed by Beth Ojala. The Recital also features a formal dinner and dessert catered by our own talented chefs & bakers.
The recital has become a much anticipated event, both for our church members and our friends & family. We hope you will join us, either in our choirs, or at our annual Recital- where we share our deep joy in Christ's birth through carols and hymns of Christmas.
