Music

Music is a distinct treasure in the Episcopal Church and dearly loved at St. Paul's. Honoring a centuries-old musical tradition alongside familiar modern hymns with voice, organ, bells, and instruments, music deeply enriches and informs our worship and community life. There is a place in this ministry for artists at every level and every age to take part, and we hope you will consider lending your gifts.

Join the Choir Today

Lending our voices and musical talents to glorify God is a joyful contribution to our church community. Whatever your musical talent—whether it be vocal, piano, brass, strings, woodwinds or percussion—consider lending your gift to one of our community’s many music ministries. Even if your talents are non-musical, we need assistants to help with all of the choirs, taking roll, assisting with children, robing and other tasks. The rewards to you, your church and community are immeasurable!


In addition to gracing our church with music, choirs at all levels offer times for fun and togetherness in the form of outings and seasonal parties, as well as traditions like caroling during Christmas time!
