The St. Matthew's Adult Choir is an integral part of the worship life
of St. Matthew's Parish. It is the responsibility of the Adult Choir to
lead the congregational song (hymns, psalms, service music) at worship
services every week between September and June and offer choral music
on behalf of the congregation during the time of the Offering and Communion.
The choir is made up of volunteers from St. Matthew's Parish as well
as a core of professional section-leader/soloists who assist the choir
in learning and performing its music and also sing solos and ensemble
pieces from time to time during the services.
