This dedicated group of approximately
twenty adults meets twice every week (Thursdays and Sunday), and
sings almost every Sunday between September and June. This group
provides fellowship, musical instruction and, most importantly,
enjoyment to all of its members.
Men and women as well as high school students
are welcomed and encouraged to join the Saint Peter's choir regardless
of singing experience. A weekly commitment is not necessary to join the
choir and all are encouraged to try it out for a few weeks to see if it
is right for them.
On Pentecost, June 8, 2014, the combined choirs

With a focus on the music of the English
cathedral tradition, the repertoire of the Saint Peter's Choir
spans many centuries and traditions. In addition to leading the
singing of congregational hymns and service music, the Saint
Peter's Choir sings a musical setting of the appointed psalm,
an offertory anthem and a communion anthem each Sunday.
The Saint Peter's Choir rehearses every Thursday from 7:30 - 9:30
PM and Sundays at 9 AM before the 10 AM service. The choir
occasionally meets for Choir Retreats outside of the regularly
scheduled practice times. For more information, please contact John Pivarnik, Minister
