Nah nah nah nah...Hey Jude…. The final chords of the Beatles Mass have been strummed and as the music echoes in my mind I am excitedly looking ahead to all we have planned for the program year at St. Paul’s! No matter your musical inclination, there is a place for you in a St. Paul’s ensemble.
Read on to learn more about all we have to offer. As you read, please take note of a few updates and changes affecting our Children’s Choirs and Youth Praise Band. Please contact me at [email protected] if you (or your child!) would like to join an ensemble, or with any questions you may have. Looking forward to another year of musical memories!
