Music ministry is a priority at St. Luke’s. Each week, inspiring music lifts our hearts in corporate worship, teaching us about God and encouraging our life of faith. At St. Luke’s, we celebrate our faith through music that draws on the Anglican and Episcopal tradition. The St. Luke’s choir leads our worship with psalms, hymns, and anthems each week from September through May at the 9:30 a.m. Eucharist. In addition, we have occasional Choral Evensong, Healing Liturgies, and an annual Service of Lessons and Carols.
Children have opportunities to participate in the Christmas and Easter choirs. Each summer, we host the St. Luke’s Music Camp for community children, which includes Choral, Orff, Mindfulness, and History sessions with an authentic curriculum.
St. Luke’s is home to a fine mechanical organ built by Lynn Dobson, Op. 57 (1992), with 42 ranks and 30 stops. Both visually and aurally, the organ is a work of master craftsmanship. Its diverse palate of sound serves our liturgy remarkably well, and it is frequently used for community concerts and recitals.
