St. Thomas Choir
Labor Day through Pentecost, the St. Thomas Choir rehearses Thursday
nights from 7:15 to 9:15 pm and sings at the 10:15 am Eucharist
on Sunday mornings, as well as other occasions. Our repertoire is mainly
classical (medieval, renaissance, baroque, classical period, romantic,
modern, minimalist, and post-modern). It also includes some jazz, folk,
contemporary, experimental, and music hot off the press by Charles Rus.
The Choristers are singers in two age divisions: grades 1-2 and grades 3-5.
The Choristers practice on Tuesday afternoons beginning in September: Junior Choristers 4:00 to 4:45 pm; Senior Choristers 4:45 to 5:45 pm. Schola Cantorum rehearses on Tuesday evenings from 7:00 to 8:30 pm.
The Choristers and Schola Cantorum regularly sing at the 10:15 Holy Eucharist and for special occasions. For more information, download our brochure.

Every Tuesday morning, a dedicated group meets to create needlepoint kneelers for the Chapel. Most of our kneelers are custom-designed for St. Thomas, and they are works of art as well as sources of practical comfort. We’re always looking for more stitchers; no experience necessary.
St. Thomas sponsors occasional musical events ranging from a New Year’s Eve concert to jazz concerts to Gilbert & Sullivan performances. Also, the church is a favorite choice of several choral groups, whose concerts are included on the Special Events page.
