Music is central to the worship life at All Saints’. All who enjoy music and would like to assist in enriching our worship services are encouraged to join our music program. If your gifts lead you to the Senior Choir, we have a four-week training program offered in January and August to prepare you for this ministry. If your gifts are non-musical, you too are welcome! We have many opportunities for your involvement. We always need those who are “technically inclined” as well as other willing hands. Please contact Joseph Ripka, Director of Music at 602-279-5539 or firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
The Senior Choir is our largest volunteer choir. Rehearsals are on Wednesday evenings at 7:00pm in the choir room (just off the church patio.)
The Chamber Choir is our professional level choir whose members are chosen from the wider Valley community.
The Chorister Program is All Saints' newest addition to the choir family. Open to all youth in grades K-12. You need not be a member of All Saints' parish or a student from the day school to join.
The Choral Programs at All Saints’ are all intended to be training programs. We begin with our youngest singers in the Chorister Program.
The All Saints' Day School Choristers is a joint program with All Saints’ Day School and directed by Joseph Ripka. It is a Royal School of Church Music program. Children of the Day School are auditioned in the third grade, and membership is by invitation. This program serves as the chorus curriculum for All Saints' Episcopal Day School. *all choristers are enrolled students of the day school.
The Choral Scholar Program is for high school and early college singers who benefit from the opportunity to sing some of the great Anglican repertoire with the professional level Chamber Choir. They are with us two Sundays per month, and are given a small stipend for their work.
The Choral Fellow Program is for college age singers who are looking ahead to careers in music. They graduate into Senior Choral Fellows which are entry level staff positions here at All Saints’.
The Handbell Choir plays at services throughout the year. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 6:00pm in the choir room.
