The Choir is the heart of the music ministry at St. Mark’s. The Choir sings for Sunday services at 10:30 September through May (sometimes a little into June), as well as for special services throughout the year such as Advent Lessons and Carols (usually the first Sunday of Advent), Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, Holy Week, and occasional special services such as Ordinations taking place at the Cathedral. Members of the Choir are extraordinarily dedicated in the sharing of their musical gifts, and form a special community within the larger St. Mark’s Community. Several choir members also play other instruments, and instrumentalists from outside the Choir sometimes join us for special events or musical numbers.
Choir rehearsals take place in the choir room each Thursday during the choir year, 7:00 until 8:30 PM, and Sunday morning 9:45-10:15. Extra rehearsal is held each Sunday before this, 9:15-9:45 AM, for those who cannot make rehearsal Thursday or who would like extra practice. If you are interested in joining the Choir, otherwise being part of the music at St. Mark’s or exploring to see if this might be a ministry for you, please contact Chris Wootton at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We are excited to be entering the second year of our Children's Choir program at St. Mark’s. Our first year was a great success and we are looking forward to continuing to improve and expand our program this year starting in the fall.
In order to best serve our Parish families with children in the choir, as well as families with children who might be interested in joining this coming year, we are asking everyone to respond to a brief survey:
Check in often to see and hear performances from the Choirs at The Cathedral Church of Saint Mark through out the year. Coming soon.
