From participating in traditional choir and contemporary ensemble, to taking part in handbell choir and our youth praise band, to listening to and enjoying performances -- music is central to life at St. Paul's! See below for ways to get involved, and check out our Concert Series for this season's schedule of musical performances.
The Chancel Choir, under the direction of Doug Starr, sings at the 10:45 service and specializes in singing the great hymns and historic music of the Church. Supported by our magnificent pipe organ and other instruments, this choir of high school age and adult singers offers wonderful choral anthems and descants, and leads our singing of Psalms and chant. We rehearse Thursdays during the program year from 7:30 until 8:45 PM and again on Sunday morning at 9:45 AM. Music reading ability and choral singing experience are a plus but not a requirement. Chancel Choir is a great source of fellowship, musicianship, and spirituality -- please join us!
Contemporary Music Ensemble
Our Contemporary Music Ensemble (a.k.a., Jam Session), under the direction of Doug Starr, plays at the 9:15 Sunday services and provides contemporary music enjoyed by people of all ages. The ensemble includes piano, guitar, bass and other instruments. Jam Session rehearses periodically on Saturday mornings in the church from 9:30 until 10:45 AM.
Under the direction of Assistant Music director Christin Cooper, this group rehearses Sundays from 12-1 pm and is open to teens and adults. Handbells play periodically at both the 9:15 and 10:45 services as well as at certain services during Holy Week. No experience is required, and new members are welcome at any time!
