The St. Paul's Choir

The St. Paul’s Choir, made up of dedicated volunteer voices and a professional octet of section leaders, provides musical leadership at the 10:00 a.m. service. While the ability to read music is not required, it is an asset. Most members do read music and the pace of rehearsals is geared to singers with that skill. The St. Paul’s Choir begins in September and continues through early June. The St. Paul’s Choir is joined by members of The New Jersey Symphony Orchestra for the Annual Spring Concert on the first Sunday of
May. The St. Paul’s Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings from 7:30 until 9:00 p.m. and on Sunday at 9:10 a.m. High School aged singers and older are invited to sing.


The Junior Choir

Membership in the Junior Choir is open to singers in grades three through middle school. Choristers may attend rehearsals on Tuesdays from 4:00 until 4:30 or on Wednesdays from 5:10 until 5:30. A snack, study hall and free time are available to the
Junior Choir members before and after rehearsal. The Junior Choir sings at the 10:00 a.m. service six times yearly, which includes the Easter & Christmas services.
 

The Primary Choir

Membership in the Primary Choir is open to singers in grades JrK through second grade. Choristers may attend rehearsals on Tuesdays from 3:30 until 4:00 or on Wednesdays from 4:50 until 5:10. A snack, study hall and free time are available to the Primary
Choir members before and after rehearsals. The Primary Choir sings at the 10:00 a.m. service six times yearly, which includes the Easter & Christmas services. Members of this choir receive musical training in preparation for becoming active in the Junior Choir of
the parish.
 

The Summer Choir

Membership in the Summer Choir is open to all members of the parish. The Summer Choir provides musical leadership at the 10:00 a.m. Sunday service from June until September. The choir meets each Sunday at 9:20 a.m. to rehearse a simple anthem. Attendance is “come when you can.”


Sometime Singers

Sometime Singers are members of the parish and community who would like to sing in The St. Paul's Choir for a choir concert, evensong, or on specific occasions such as Christmas and Easter. 
 

The Special Music Fund

Several of our special musical presentations are made possible by the Lois M. Hey Music Fund and the Special Music Fund. The Hey Fund was established to provide instrumentalists for special services and concerts. Likewise, the Special Music Fund is a musical endowment supported by your gifts.
 

Friends of Music

Friends of Music at St. Paul's was established in April, 1993, to enhance the musical experience at St. Paul's Episcopal Church - above and beyond the parish program. Their financial and volunteer support allows us to maintain and to expand our musical offerings to the parish and community. The support of over 160 members of the parish and community allows us to continue the Spring Concert series and to provide funding for the instrumentalists at our Advent Lessons and Carols Service, our Christmas and Easter services and, in addition, to other musical events and recitals throughout the year.

“The aim and final end of all music should be none other
than the glory of God and the refreshment of the soul.”
