On any given Sunday, the St. Francis adult choir numbers between 18 – 20 members. We are all volunteers except our professional soprano and tenor section leaders. While serious about our music, we think of ourselves as affable, easy-going and always in search of a good time. We encourage those who have a sincere desire to sing and serve the parish in this way to consider participating. We are also always looking for new voices and love welcoming them into our fold.
Over the years we have performed several major works with orchestral ensembles including Hayden's "Mass in the Time of War," Vivaldi's "Gloria," Bach's "Magnificat," Britten's "Ceremony of Carols," Saint Saens' "Christmas Oratorio," Charpentier's "Messe de Minuit de Noel," Randall Thompson's "The Peaceable Kingdom," Schubert's "Mass in G," Carl Jenkins' "The Armed Man," "A Mass for Peace," and the Durufle, Faure, Mozart, and Rutter Requiems. You can read more here about our special performances.
We also sing several Evensongs through the year and participate in an Ecumenical "Music Fest" every spring. In addition, we sing at special services including Maundy Thursday and the Easter Vigil.
During the school year, the choir rehearses at 7:30 on Thursday evenings and sings at the 11:00 service. Occasionally, we will join the Joyful Noyz at the 9:00 service. During June and July, we sing at the 10:00 service and rehearse at 9:00 the same day. We typically take some time off during the summer.
