Music is vital to our worship at Grace and St. Stephen’s. We strive for the highest quality in liturgy and music, seeking to touch the heart and renew the spirit. Choir, organ and other instruments enhance prayer and singing, offering something apart from everyday life.

The Taylor Choir is the foundation of our music program. The repertoire draws heavily from the Anglican tradition, while including many other style periods. The choir sings each Sunday for the 10:30 am service of Holy Eucharist and for special services and concerts throughout the year. The Taylor Choir rehearses on Thursday evenings at 7 pm (Sept.-May) and between services during the summer. An audition it required and can be arranged by sending an email to email@example.com
