Vocal Music at National City Christian Church


Since the church’s founding in 1930, National City Christian Church choirs have sung for presidents and numerous world dignitaries, collaborated with such musical luminaries as opera greats Leontyne Price and Denyce Graves, and sung for numerous special events for its national Disciples of Christ membership.

Accompanied by the majestic, 7,500 pipe Möller pipe organ and Steinway Grand Piano, the choirs of National City Christian Church offer the gift of the finest music to God, the church and the community.
