ST. DAVID’S MUSIC PROGRAM

Music is an important part of the worship life at St. David’s. We welcome and encourage those who are so inclined to join us!
~Dr. Kristi Baker, Director of Music

ST. DAVID’S CHOIR – Open to all persons college age through adult who love to sing, this group provides music for the 10:30 Holy Eucharist on the second and fourth Sundays of each month between September and May. Additionally, they contribute to special services during Advent, Christmas, Lent, Easter, and on other occasions as requested. The choir rehearses every Thursday evening from 7:00 to 8:30 PM, where the singers prepare liturgical music in a wide variety of styles and voicings. Any adult who loves to sing (regardless of their perceived ability) is encouraged to join in. Please contact Dr. Kristi Baker for more information.

CHILDREN’S CHOIR – This choir meets every Sunday morning at 9:00 AM, just prior to Sunday School, and is open to any child in kindergarten through sixth grade. The group currently provides music twice a year, during the Christmas and Easter seasons, at the 10:30 AM Holy Eucharist. Please contact Dr. Kristi Baker for more information.

CONTEMPORARY GROUP – This ensemble normally provides prelude, offertory, and communion anthems at the 10:30 AM Holy Eucharist on the first Sunday of each month from September through May. Their repertory consists of contemporary Christian music for vocals, keyboard, and percussion. Rehearsals are scheduled as needed, usually within the two weeks prior to the first Sunday of the month. For more information, please contact Dr. Kristi Baker or Mr. Dana Book, Contemporary group director.

SPECIAL GUEST MUSICIANS from within and outside the congregation are encouraged to share their talents during the 10:30 AM Holy Eucharist during the months of June, July, and August, and on the third and fifth Sundays during the school year. Our parish has enjoyed a number of accomplished vocalists and instrumentalists of all ages as soloists or in ensembles, and we look forward to continuing this rich tradition. Please contact Dr. Kristi Baker for more information.

With the rebuilt WOLFF ORGAN, we will occasionally showcase the instrument. Dedicated in November of 2009, along with the new building, this 27-stop tracker organ was originally built for St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church in Wilton, Connecticut. It was bought by St. David’s in 2007 and taken to Hellmuth Wolff’s shop in Canada where it was renovated and updated.>
