The music department of Saint Thomas includes a liturgical choir, a youth choir, and a byzantine choir. If you or your child would like to participate, please contact the choir director at the following e-mail: email@example.com
Liturgical Choir: The St. Thomas Liturgical Choir sings during the Sunday Divine Liturgy and special Feast Days from late September through Pentecost. The choir is performing a program based on our Traditional Byzantine Music arranged to fit the style of Saint Thomas Greek Orthodox Church with spiritually uplifting music. Byzantine hymns are sung in Greek. Rehearsals are scheduled weekly.
Youth Choir: For GOYA members and other Youth Ministries members, the youth choir assist the adult participants during the services and this way they learn the music while in church. This helps ease the entry into the choir by our youth and eliminates the scheduling demands for rehearsals held during the week. Also, the youth choir participates at the Sights and Sounds contest as Liturgical Choir.
Byzantine Choir: In addition to singing during religious services, choir members and other individuals have the chance to participate in the Psaltiri assisting the main Chanter and learning the Byzantine Music.
THE SAINT THOMAS CHOIR INVITES NEW MEMBERS
The Saint Thomas Church Choir is coming back this September. Anyone who loves to sing and share their talents with the congregation during the Divine Liturgy is invited to join! New members are welcome at any time.
Choir practices are held on Thursdays, at 6:30pm (Choir room).
Singing in a choir is not only pleasant but also beneficial for our health and well-being. It can improve breathing, posture, mood, and memory. Plus, you contribute to our church a unique way!
The Saint Thomas Choir has been active since the Church opened its doors on October 1, 1967. Since then, the Choir has adorned the Liturgical services in our Church up to the present time. The Choir sings the Divine Liturgy in Greek either in polyphonic, four-part harmony adapted to traditional Byzantine hymnology with new and/or classic compositions or according to the traditional monophonic Byzantine Music (Byzantine Chant).
The Saint Thomas Choir has been a vital, important and energetic part of the Parish from its inception and today remains as much a vital, important and energetic part of our Parish. Please, contact the Music Ministry at (856) 206-5682 or at
