Music at St. John's
The worship life of St. John’s parish is a rich one, steeped in the liturgical tradition of the Episcopal Church. Excellence in sacred music offered to the glory of God is one of the hallmarks of our liturgical life. While most of our music making involves hearty participation by the congregation and choir, there are many opportunities for disciplined and prayerful listening: organ or instrumental voluntaries, anthems, occasional choral settings of the music of the Eucharist, as well as services of Evensong and Advent Lessons and Carols, in which choral and instrumental music can be experienced in heightened ways. Our music is never intended as entertainment, but rather to draw people into the deeper realities of God. Whether you are a practicing musician or a dedicated listener, there is an important place for you in the music of St. John’s church.
