Music Ministries

The Music Ministries of St. Peter’s are comprised of many musicians who lovingly give of their talent and time to serve God. Music is integral to our worship, formation, and spiritual growth. Rooted in the richness of the Anglican choral tradition, this ministry seeks to encourage the participation and involvement of all parishioners in a way that is Christ-centered and deepens our faith.

Adult Choir

The St. Peter’s Choir is a group of adult singers open to high school students and adults of all ages who are committed to enriching our worship with excellent musical offerings. They provide leadership for the weekly 11 a.m. liturgy as well as Choral Evensong, Christmas Lessons & Carols, Easter, and other special services and concerts throughout the year. Anyone that loves to sing and use their voice to praise God is welcome to join.  We do not have a formal audition. Contact Vernon Carey about your interest, then come to rehearsals on Wednesday evenings from 7:15  to 9:00 p.m. in the Terrill House.  Section leaders help you to learn your part, and we have fun while learning the music.  Anthems are rehearsed for several weeks in advance so if you have to miss a rehearsal, you feel confident singing on Sunday morning.  Warm up is at 10:15 a.m. in the choir loft each Sunday morning.
