Music Program at St. Christopher's

The Music Program at Saint Christopher’s

To know Christ, to love Christ, to serve Christ in others

The Parish Choir consists of 21 volunteer singers. Many of the members are trained musicians and some are active professionals in the music community. The choir rehearses on Wednesday evenings from 7:30 until 9:00 pm. They sing each Sunday from September through the Memorial Day weekend.  Each year the choir sings at the annual  “All Saints Concert”, provides an extended musical prelude for the Christmas Eve Service (10:00 pm), and provides musical leadership during Holy Week. If you are interested in joining the choir please contact Joe Gabalski at jagabalski@me.com.
