The St. James’s choir banner, hand-crafted by Vienna Cobb Anderson, is an appropriate depiction of music at St. James’s. Bright, ebullient, eclectic, always moving, morphing, yet grounded, joyful, free, colorful, enriching, praising, thankful, powerful, life-giving, life-sustaining. The source of all of this is God. A God not only of color and texture, but the God of song – the Creator of stones that cry, stars that bend their voices together, mountains and hills that break forth into singing, and trees that not only sing but clap their hands.
There is a place for everyone to lift their voice in song. Whether you are an experienced singer or have never sung at all, you are welcome to join us.

If you have any questions or are ready to sign up, give us a call at 355.1779, ext. 323 (Mark) or 324 (Virginia) or email us at [email protected] or [email protected]
