Music Ministry

Alan Trinity Cathedral Organ Photo - CopyMusic plays a vital role in the worship and liturgy at St. George’s. The power of music to connect heart and mind and to elevate the spirit cannot be denied. To encourage growth in faith, one must be continually challenged and involved in the pursuit thereof; like-wise, a similar approach is taken with music.

The traditional, classically-based program provides three choirs for volunteers of all ages and abilities. Our wind and brass ensemble, Sanctifica, provides provides music for worship and fellowship throughout the church year, as well as its own featured annual concert. Exultemus!, a guitar and vocal ensemble, is open to those interested in contemporary music programs. Please see the Choirs & Music Groups section to learn more about each program we offer.

Music Mission

It is the mission of the music program to provide quality choral and instrumental music of all centuries that inspires and stretches both the listener and the musician in worship.
