“A church or a school without a choir is like a body without a soul.” –John Rutter
The choirs of St. Luke’s are indeed the “soul” of the church’s music ministry, enlivening worship through song. Every Sunday, the Parish Choir, for adults and teenagers, provides music for all 10 o'clock services from September through mid-June, singing music for soprano, alto, tenor and bass voices from all musical eras from medieval times through the present day. The children’s choir, which rehearses weekly after the 10 o’clock service, performs two musicals a year and provides additional music approximately once a month throughout the church year. Both choirs are under the direction of Kate Weber-Petrova, organist and choirmaster, who also plays "Cecilia," St. Luke’s magnificent Visser pipe organ.
In addition to our vocal ensembles, St. Luke’s has a hand-bell choir led by Debbie Stephens that meets weekly and performs on special occasions throughout the church year.
