CHANCEL CHOIR

Classical choral music is at the heart of our worship, with our 50+ member Chancel Choir, led by Music Director Kurt R. Hansen. You’ll hear classical and contemporary anthems, Jewish liturgical music, African-American spirituals, German chorales, Gospel songs and special offerings, including an annual cantata.

VIRTUAL MUSIC

We haven’t missed a beat since the start of the pandemic, thanks to our Virtual Chancel Choir, directed and edited by Breanna Coe, along with the remote contributions of many of our fine individual musicians.

YOUTH CHOIRS

Kids learn to love to sing at St. Pauls, and we love hearing them in church. Kinderchapel (ages 2-5) and Childrens’ Choir (1st- 3rd grade) are directed by Nancy Voights Godinez. Pauls People, 4th-8th grade is led by Kecia Waldschmidt. Joyful Sound 9th-12th grades, is directed by Kris Hansen. 

AEOLIAN-SKINNER PIPE ORGAN

We are blessed with an exceptional organist, Kevin Dzierzawski, and an equally wonderful instrument. With over 5000 pipes, 98 ranks and four manuals and pedals, it imbues worship with a sense of wonder.

ST. ARBUCKS TRIO

Gospel and jazz enliven worship every week, too, thanks to this professional 3-piece ensemble let by Brendan Henry.

ORCHESTRA

Our Intergenerational Orchestra is made up completely of St Pauls members, often ranging in age from nine to ninety. It’s conducted by Mark Mosley.

BIBLE OFF BROADWAY

The month of January is given over to children and adults learning a Bible story or theme through music – with rewritten Broadway favorites teaching the lessons. It culminates in a fun and unforgettable celebration of the faith.
