The Parish Choir is the parish’s musical centerpiece. Consisting of both professional and volunteers singers, the Parish Choir sings most Sundays as well as other major fests and festivals during the academic year. The Parish Choir is open to any and all of high school age onwards. This choir rehearses from 9:00 am until 9:45 am before the main Sunday service and then 11:30 am until 12 noon after.
Embracing the vast repertory of the Anglican/Episcopal tradition, this choir sings two sizeable anthems per service as well as a psalm. Renowned for its great expression and fine timbre, this ensemble enjoys the reputation as one of New England’s finest church choirs.
An informal audition is required for admission into this choir. Previous choral experience is not necessarily an advantage to gaining admission to the group, however being able to read, and sight-read music is required.
