There are two dedicated groups at St. Mary's that take turns providing music for our 10 am service: a choir and organist singing traditional and modern choral music; and a folk/contemporary group featuring piano, guitars and other strings, and percussion.
The St. Mary's Choir is a dedicated, friendly core group of a dozen singers, with additional participants welcomed who sing part time. The choir rehearses September through May on Wednesday evenings from 6:15-7:15 pm in the Sanctuary. Rehearsals are full of spiritual music making and laughter. The choir does not practice midweek during the summer. Music director Luke Honeck conducts and organist Rachel Morgan plays organ and piano.
