St Francis Music Ministry
Our Musical Style
St. Francis Choir, under the direction of Dr. Jeannie Cobb, performs an eclectic variety of traditional choral music from throughout church history, all chosen for its excellence and appropriateness. The main church’s unusually resonant acoustic is particularly suitable for the enjoyment of choral and organ music.
In addition to music for the 10:00 Service on Sunday mornings, the choir prepares major works for performance four times a year. The last year included Messiah choruses, Missa Gaia by the Paul Winter Consort, the Bach Magnificat, and a showcase of Gilbert and Sullivan scenes just for fun.
Membership in the St. Francis Choir is a joyful social and musical experience.
We rehearse on Thursday evenings from 7:15-9:00, and meet at 9:00 Sunday morning to warm up and prepare ourselves for worship. Our “Super Singers” are folks who cannot consider the every-week schedule, but join us for the outside concerts. These singers begin with us at 7:15 and leave part way through (usually 8:00).
In the summer we drop our mid-week rehearsal and sing through the end of July, to begin again in September.
