The Parish Choir
The 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.
Allegro Choir (grades K-2)
Allegro Choir is an introduction to choral singing for young voices and rehearses Thursdays at 5:15pm. They rehearse year-round but singers can join us for specific sessions at a time. The choir offers music at Sunday services on an occasional basis.
Choristers (grades 3-6)
The Choristers rehearse on Thursdays, 5:15-7:30pm. They sing service music and some anthems for select Sunday services and special events.

Under the direction of former St. Thomas Director of Music Pat Matchette, The 25 men and women of the Super Singers meet year-round on alternate Friday mornings, and welcome singers age 55 and up. This ecumenical group was first organized 18 years ago, and features members of at least 5 different local churches.
We meet not only to enjoy singing music of the past, but to entertain audiences at SEM Terrace and at St. Thomas on special occasions. Contact Pat at firstname.lastname@example.org or 513.831.2550
A small group of musicians provide music for our Sunday evening Vespers service (on Sundays when there is no Bach Vespers or Choral Evensong). Because of the simplicity of music, 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 Vespers service please be in touch! Ideal instruments are guitar, flute, or violin.
For more information about any of the ensembles, please contact Dr. Carlton Monroe.
