Hopfully it is a grand, and I would recommend a pair of omni mics 8-10" above the dampers at C2 and C6, panned hard left and right. You can adjust that spread to say 9 o'clock and 3 o'clock if you like that better. Also inspect the piano for mechanical noises from the pedals and tighten up the piano bench to stop creaks. I would use a pair of uni mics in ortf in front of the choir about 7 feet from the floor with the back of the mics toward the piano and the choir facing the piano...if this is at all possible. Work on getting the piano sound to your liking. Then have the choir sing an acapella piece to get their sound and spread to your liking. You will then have to work at a proper balance between the piano and choir. A touch of reverb will work well on both, but not too much.
