Saint Thomas Aquinas Choir

The St. Thomas Aquinas Choir rehearses on Thursdays, 7:30-9:30 p.m., September through June, and sings at the Sunday 11:00 a.m. mass, as well as concerts and special liturgies throughout the year.

Choristers dedicated to the performance of traditional sacred music have mounted the St. Thomas Aquinas choir loft steps every Sunday morning for generations. The choir's repertoire spans over a thousand years of church history, from chant and polyphony to contemporary composers, with an emphasis on the works of Bach, Mozart and other baroque and classical composers. Concert works performed in recent years include requiem masses by Mozart, Michael Haydn and Faure, Stabat Mater by Pergolesi, Handel's Messiah, and select cantatas by J.S. Bach.

The St. Thomas Aquinas Choir welcomes new members by audition. Requirements include the ability to read music, choral singing experience and commitment to regular attendance. If you are interested in joining the St. Thomas Aquinas Choir, please contact Michael Conrady, Director of Music.
