Canterbury Choir involves singers with a wide range of musical skill levels, amateur and professional, and ages (teens and adults). They sing year round. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings, 7:30 to 9:30 p.m., except during the summer. Contact Justin Boyer to learn more.
This professional ensemble (heard here in rehearsal) sings every Sunday at the 11:30 a.m. service and for other events and special services. They serve as section leaders in the Canterbury Choir as well as singing as a separate ensemble. Contact Justin Boyer to learn more.
Children's Music Program
Open to all children who want to make music ages 4 through 10. Workshops are held on Thursdays, 6:00 to 6:45 p.m. Children have fun playing instruments like drums and hand chimes, learn to read music, compose their own melodies, and provide music for worship once a month. The group also presents the annual Christmas Pageant. This year's theme is "The World Sings Noel." Contact Amie Vandersluis to learn more.
Anyone and everyone is welcome to sing at the 10 a.m. summer service. Come to rehearsal at 9 a.m., get the music for the day and pick up a hymnal. No vestments required.
Singing in unfamiliar places, whether grand cathedral spaces, ancient catacombs, or sites of human tragedy or triumph, is a sacred experience in its own right. Choirs from St. Alban’s have made pilgrimage to England (2004), Italy (2008), Austria and the Czech Republic (2010), England (2012) and France (2015). They have enjoyed the strong bonding experiences that come from preparing for such travels, returning to St. Alban’s as a core of renewed energy, eager to serve the parish as musical leaders. Parishioners have found that supporting the choir in these pilgrimages is part of the offering of our gifts to the broader world and is consistent with good stewardship of the talents of our parishioners and as outreach to the stranger.
