Whether you sit in appreciation as a member of the congregation, or you participate actively as a member of our choir, there is no question that music is a central part of our worship and celebration of life here at St. James.

St. James Choir meets for rehearsal on Thursday evenings, 7:30-9:30pm, in the Parish Hall and sings regularly on Sunday mornings (September-May) at the 10:00 a.m. service. There is a rehearsal at 9:00am prior to the Sunday service. Membership in St. James’s Choir is open to those with previous singing experience who would enjoy regular practice and performance of great music.

Expenses associated with maintaining our choir include sheet music, royalties, occasional freelance musical assistance (guest instrumentalists, vocalists, etc), and maintenance (to keep our physical pipes in good working conditions). Your contribution to the SJC music fund will help us continue to provide the inspiring sounds that enhance all of the services that take place in our church.

For more information please contact Matt Siess, Music Director or Ruth Eifert, Choir Director at  We will forward your e-mail directly to Matt or Ruth for response.
