This fall, St.Paul's Episcopal Church at Clinton and Carroll Streets is looking to expand both their children's and adult choirs. More information below:

St. Paul's Choir seeks eager avocational singers of all levels to join us beginning this fall!
The tradition of music has always played a vital role at St. Paul’s. We believe in the importance of the human voice and how it is central to all our rites of worship. All through the rich history of our parish you will find at every juncture high caliber musicians and parishioners with unwavering dedication, expressing their devotion to God through music. With the Fall season upon us, St Paul’s is seeking dedicated individuals who would like to continue this tradition by being a part of our adult choir or our children’s choir, The Treble Choir..

At the heart of our music ministry is St. Paul's Choir, a 20-25 voice volunteer choir who sing the high liturgy and provide meaningful anthems to augment Sunday mass. The Treble Choir provides a great singing and learning opportunity for young people, ages 6 and up. Singers explore solfege and Kodaly hand signs, and learn fundamentals of reading rhythm and pitch notation in a nurturing and supportive atmosphere. St. Paul's Choir sings every Sunday, October through May, and The Treble Choir sings periodically throughout the same season. Both choirs enjoy giving concerts in addition to their important Sunday morning work.

If you are interested in auditioning for St. Paul's Choir or The Treble Choir, please feel free to email us at: for more information.

Commitment details:
Treble Choir - Ages 6 to 14 Weekly rehearsal on Thursday evenings from 6:00 to 7:00pm

St. Paul's Choir - Weekly rehearsal on Thursday evenings from 7:30 to 9:15pm, plus occasional extra rehearsals
Sunday mornings, beginning promptly at 9:30am, with Mass from 11am to 12:30pm

Sacred music of all time periods, but focusing primarily on Renaissance, Baroque, and 20th Century composers.

Rudimentary music reading is a plus, but not required to join.
