I1998 when Rev. Stephen Tong came to Washington, D.C. to lead an evangelistic meeting sponsored by Chinese churches in the area, he asked the local churches to form a joint choir to sing Handel’s “Hallelujah Chorus” under his baton. His request was a great challenge for us, because prior to that we had never had a joint choir. However the response to the challenge was very positive and a large joint choir was formed. The beautiful and touching “Hallelujah Chorus” moved both the hearts of the audience as well as the choral members.  After the presentation, as moved by the Holy Spirit, the joint choir members all felt that this presentation should not be the last but the first to lead us to continue this wonderful joint effort to serve our Lord. A group of brothers and sisters from different churches decided to call a meeting to pray and asked for God’s guidance. Thus the “Christian Oratorio Society of Greater Washington. D.C.” (COS or COSGW), a cross-church music ministry group was formed.



一九九八年秋唐崇榮牧師來華府主領大華府區各教會聯合培靈佈道大唐牧師邀請組成聯合詩班獻唱韓德爾的[哈利路亞合唱名曲由他擔任指揮當時各教會詩班踴躍參與陣容強大獻上美好的頌讚歌聲使聽眾及歌唱者大受感動.


會後班員隨著聖靈的帶領都主張組織聯合詩班同心合意繼續和發揚跨越教會界線的聖樂事工此外,許多信徒有鑒於社會上已有許多合唱團的組織經常舉辦音樂會表演各種歌曲然而,當時卻沒有一個由基督徒組成的聖樂合唱團結合本地區各教會的信徒以音樂和歌聲來讚美主,將救恩信息以歌聲傳達人間.

 

因此經十幾位來自不同教會志同道合和對音樂事工有恩賜與經驗的弟兄姊妹幾經相討和禱告後正式成立這樣的組織定名 基督教華府聖樂團.
