Music at St. Peter's

Music has long been central to the worship at St. Peter’s Church for its 150-year history. See our Music and Worship Timeline, 1868–2018.

The music ministry of St. Peter’s provides an opportunity for young people and adults to become involved in the life of this parish through music. The parish music program includes the St. Peter’s Choristers, the St. Peter’s Choir, a handbell choir, and the St. Peter’s Singers.

The St. Peter’s Choristers and Choir have an essential role on Sundays. Each Sunday at the 10:30 a.m. service the Choir leads the hymns and service music and sings choral music for the service (introit, anthems, and motets). Members of the Choir also sing for the 8:00 a.m. service once a month, and even sing at weddings and funerals on occasion.

In addition to this music on Sunday mornings, St. Peter’s provides a series of Choral Evensong services on the second Sunday of every month and choral concerts with orchestra.

The S. William Aitken Endowment Fund has been established to ensure a vibrant future for the music ministry at St. Peter’s. Music is one of our great offerings of praise and thanksgiving to God and is essential to worship. Under Bill’s leadership, St. Peter’s has become known for the quality of our music program, and we are committed to building on this strong foundation.

To date, we have 114 families that have committed over $160,000 to support this fund! If you would like to ensure an enduring legacy of fine music by contributing to this fund, please contact the Church Office at 314-993-2306, or
