The Saint Mark’s Choir endeavors to sing the finest liturgical music at the highest possible level. Repertoire ranges from the Renaissance to the present day (2016-2017 repertoire list). Composed primarily of volunteers, the choir welcomes adults and high school-age singers who are able to make a firm commitment of time for rehearsals and services.
The choir sings for the principal Holy Eucharist each Sunday morning from September to May. The choir also provides music for numerous special services throughout the year, including periodic services of Choral Evensong, a service of Advent Lessons and Carols in December, Christmas Eve, Ash Wednesday, and the Paschal Triduum during Holy Week (Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and the Great Vigil of Easter).
The group periodically travels, both nationally and internationally. The choir has sung at Washington National Cathedral on several occasions and at St. Thomas Fifth Avenue in New York City. In August 2012 the group served as choir-in-residence at Worcester Cathedral in England, providing music for daily services throughout its residency week. The choir returned to England in summer 2015 to be choir-in-residence for a week at Lincoln Cathedral. The group will return to England in July 2021 to be choir-in-residence for a week at Wells Cathedral.
Interested singers are invited to contact the Director of Music to arrange a meeting.
