We are blessed with music leadership from three gifted people, Ross Stretton (music director) and Bev. Philips (Joyful Noise choir director) and Catherine Arcand-Pinette (youth choir director), Anna Sheridan-Jonah (leader of our praise band) as well as many others who contribute to our music ministry.
St. Paul's has a vibrant music program, with lots of opportunities for you to give musical expression to the wide range of emotions that belong to a rich spiritual life. One such opportunity comes each Sunday through our choir. All are welcome to join (if you can sing in the shower, then you can sing in our choir). Except in the summer months, we meet on Thursday evenings from 7:00 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. We also have a practice before church on Sunday mornings at 9 a.m.
If you are interested, or have questions, feel free to join us on any Thursday evening without obligation, or phone the choir President, Pat Freedman, at 905-631-5568. If you prefer, please phone the church office at 905-845-3427 and leave a message.
If you have been thinking about it – don’t think any longer – just pick up the phone or plan to join us on any Thursday evening.
This choir is made up of enthusiastic young singers ranging in age from 3 to 12. They meet throughout the year at 9:15 every Sunday morning (except during summer). They sing periodically at our Sunday worship services, the Family Christmas Service, and we usually visit a seniors residence in May. We would love to have you join us.
It's a wonderful way for your liitle ones to get involved in music.
Bev Phillips is the music director for Joyful Noise.
GLOW - Our youth choir
Ages: Gr. 7 and aboveRehearsals are every other Sunday at 11:30am in the Sanctuary. You can contact Catherine, firstname.lastname@example.org, for dates and more information.
If you are in grade six and a part of Joyful Noise, the children's choir, you are invited to join the youth choir one year early!
The music we sing is upbeat, contemporary praise/worship music. It is important that the melodies are beautiful to sing, but also that the songs have a good beat and are inspiring to learn. It's kind of like singing with a rock band! Catherine Arcand-Pinette , our amazing leader is also very picky about choosing words that are relevant and inspiring to the youth in the choir. We sing in unison and in simple parts. The congregation has thoroughly enjoyed the participation of these talented youth.
