At St. Peter’s, we believe that making music is a wonderful way to praise God, draw ourselves together in a community, and celebrate the beauty of creation. We sing music from our rich Anglican choral tradition, as well as music from a variety of other cultures. Our several choirs, our organ, and our concert series keep the church ringing with sound. Come and join us! You will find your place and your voice here with us.
We welcome children and adults with a wide variety of musical experience. We gather in a congenial atmosphere of learning and fellowship. If you are interested in participating in one of our choirs, in our music series or in any other way with the music program at St. Peter’s, please contact us.
