Music at St. Ann’s is concerned with one thing: the glorification of God. Drawing on the large treasury of Western sacred music, and exploring the ever-widening musical language of the whole Church, the hymns, organ music, and choir anthems enhance the liturgy through the offerings of many people. There are many ways to participate in the music program at St. Ann’s.
This is the most visible and regular way to participate. Membership is open to anyone; parish membership is not a requirement. Prospective members should have some prior singing experience, and the ability to read music is always helpful. Contact the choirmaster for more information. The choir sings each Sunday at the 10:30 service and rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:30-9:30 and on Sunday mornings from 9:30-10:15.
During the summer, our parish choir is on holiday. We enlist the aid of soloists to enhance our worship from June through August. Please contact the choirmaster if you are interested in this ministry.
