Music at St. Peter's
St. Peter's offers a superlative music education to area boys and girls.
Music at St. Peter’s Church opens hearts and minds to the transforming power of Christ’s love. We value music as a dynamic spiritual force that enriches the lives of parishioners and visitors alike. We nurture the talents of our musicians of all ages, we reach through the universal language of music to our neighborhood and the broader community, and we welcome all to sing, play, and enjoy making music to the glory of God.
The St. Peter's Choirs
St. Peter’s has the largest, liveliest, and most comprehensive children’s choir program in Philadelphia, offering a superlative music education to area boys and girls. Our adult choir is composed of professionals and dedicated amateur singers who enjoy making great music together.
Our choirs have achieved recognition far beyond the walls of St. Peter's Church. We recently performed for the Conference of the Midwestern and Southeastern Divisions of the Historical Keyboard Association and were invited to perform for the Eastern Division Convention of the American Choral Director's Association. We enjoyed a successful residency at Christ Church Cathedral, Oxford in 2010. In August, 2013, we will be in residence at Canterbury Cathedral, England.
Joining the St. Peter's Choirs
There are always openings for new children (as young as first grade), adolescents, and adults in our choirs. If you are interested, please contact Choirmaster Peter Hopkins. Check back soon for audio samples of our musicians at work.
