Make a joyful noise to the Lord, all the earth;
break forth into joyous song and sing praises.
All Saints Parish is known for it’s fine music program. We are also happy to host several other musical groups that practice and perform here throughout the year. Please check out our YouTube channel! Subscribe and click the bell icon for all notifications!
Two great themes drive our ministries at All Saints: worship and service. Music is not an enhancement of worship for us. Here, the making of music is an offering of earnest devotion to the glory of God. Music is our worship whether it comes from the choir stalls, the organ, the pews, or the altar. We recognize that participation in worship, both spoken and sung, has the capacity to nourish and transform us into people prepared to do God’s reconciling work in the world.
Many choristers form and sustain strong interpersonal bonds through participation in the choral programs at All Saints. The Adult Choir rehearses for two hours weekly on Thursday evenings from September through late May or early June. In addition to preparing anthems for Sunday mornings, they also provide music for Evensongs, Choral Complines, and various other liturgies throughout the year.
Our children’s music program, Schola, enables parish youth in grades 4 through 12 to build musical skills, vocal confidence, and a church community. Schola rehearses once during the week and sings roughly twice each month during the Sunday morning worship service and at special services throughout the year. This liturgical responsibility, coupled with church school opportunities, provides a rich context for children’s faith to grow.
