Music speaks to the soul in unique and direct ways. The music ministry of St. Michael’s Episcopal Church provides avenues for people of all ages to enhance worship and community, grow as an artist and offer their talents back to God. Through this program we reach out and minister to those both within and outside the parish of St. Michael’s.
Our choirs are affiliated with the Royal School of Church Music in America (RSCM-A).
Adult Choral Opportunities
