The Choirs and Ensembles

The Parish Choir


Tchoir-palm-sundayhe St. Thomas Parish Choir consists of adults and teens and sings at the 10:15am service from after Labor Day to Pentecost, as well as special services and events throughout the year. The choir rehearses Thursday evenings from 7:00 – 9:00 p.m.  The choir’s repertoire includes traditional Anglican works, choral masterworks from all eras, as well as the work of modern composers.

Some choral experience is recommended, although the Choral Scholars are able to help and lead less experienced singers.

Taizé Musicians


taize-candles-2The Taizé Musicians provide music for our monthly Taizé service. Because of the simplicity of Taizé chants, the music is easily accessible for beginning musicians and able to be adapted to a number of different instruments. If you are interested in playing for a Taizé service please be in touch! Ideal instruments are guitar, flute, or violin.
