Music

St. Luke’s Church Choir

The Parish Choir, made up of adults with four section leaders and four choral scholars, is directed by Russell Jackson and accompanied by David Heller. During the year, the Parish Choir sings at the 11:00 AM service on Sunday mornings. The Choir rehearses every Wednesday at 7:00 PM.
 
To hear music from the St. Luke’s Parish Choir, check out the playlist below. 

Choral Evensong

Choral Evensong is a combination of two monastic offices, Vespers and Compline, taken from the Magnificat (Song of Mary) and the Nunc Dimittis (Song of Simeon). These settings, along with Choral Responses, Psalms, and Anthem reflect the season and are some of the most glorious moments in the Anglican Choral Tradition. You are invited to take part in the beauty of holiness offered here at St. Luke’s.
 
A list of choral repertoire, organ music, Evensongs, concerts/special events is released at the end of summer and gives details for the upcoming year. Click Here to download a copy.
