Note: We’re still singing! During the pandemic, the St. Thomas Choir has gone virtual. Thursday rehearsals take place in Zoom. Choir members record videos of themselves singing at home while they watch a recording of the conductor and accompaniment. All their videos are stitched together to make a full choir video which is played during Sunday services. We welcome new choristers, so contact us if you’d like to join in! Check out the full choir playlist on St. Thomas YouTube Channel.
Make a joyful noise unto the LORD, all the earth: make a loud noise, and rejoice, and sing praise.
Psalm 98:4 (King James Bible)
Music enhances our worship by elevating our senses and providing an emotional connection to express our praise, love and thanksgiving to God. Our parish has been blessed to have an active choir of mixed male and female voices singing soprano, alto, tenor and bass since the mid-1950s. Interested in the Adult Choir? Contact us!
We sing at the 10:30 A.M. worship service. Everyone’s participation is encouraged, and for those who enjoy singing in smaller ensembles or solo, there are ample opportunities, especially during the summer months.
Beginning June through early September, we take a break from our weekly rehearsals and offer a potpourri of vocal and instrumental music during worship. We also perform at special events such as the Saint Thomas Centennial and Santa Clara Valley Deanery concerts.
We are pleased to offer scholarships this year to two college students to participate in the expression and performance of choral music within the parish.
We often look to complement our worship experience with musical selections that include other instruments too, for example, flute, violin, trumpet and guitar. If you have a musical talent to share, we’d be delighted to hear from you.
Our fun-loving group enjoys welcoming new singers and musicians. Drop by one of our weekly rehearsals and join in! We get together in the Sanctuary on Thursdays from 7:30 to 9:00 P.M., and Sundays at 9:45 A.M. for a practice before the 10:30 A.M. service.
