Music at St. Paul's

Through music and liturgy at St.Paul's, we worship together as a community in one body. Our music program is lead by Choirmaster/Organist Mrs.Debbie Scott, who has over 47 years of church music knowledge. Our assistant organist Josiah Riddle member of the AGO is currently under the mentorship of Mrs. Scott. Since 1909 St.Paul's has used music to bring one another together. If you would like more information to be a part of the choir please visit our contact page.

 

Parish Choir

Explore the rich heritage of musical styles in the Episcopal Church, examine traditions of the liturgical year, and learn how to participate more confidently in our church's worship. Rehearsals consist of anthem learning, hymn singing, liturgy training. .If you are interested in singing in the choir, we will be having choir practice every Wednesday at 5:30 PM. Please join us!
