St. George’s Choir

St. George’s Choir is an adult choir that leads our 10:00am worship service on Sunday morning as well as Choral Evensong and other special services and concerts. The choir is comprised of both professional singers and dedicated volunteers who work tirelessly to bring high-quality music and leadership to the worship experience at St. George’s. The music is primarily centered on traditional Anglican choral repertoire by composers ranging from the 16th century to modern times. This adult choir rehearses every Wednesday at 7:00pm during the academic year. In summer of 2023, the choir will join the Choristers of St. George's in a week-long residency at Canterbury Cathedral in the U.K.

You can find videos from all of our choirs on our YouTube channel.

Organ

The long-anticipated arrival of our new pipe organ, Buzard Opus 48, is upon us. This last part of the Living our Legacy campaign has been in process for many months. In July, we received the delivery of 35,000 pounds of materials for the structure, casework, and mechanics of the organ.  We look forward to the ways the new organ will provide meaningful music in our services, encourage congregational singing, and be a resource of sacred music for the community. Learn more about installation progress at the link below.  Organ Press Release May 2020.
