Music is an integral part of St. Andrew’s worship and parish life and we are blessed with one of the finest vocal ensembles in Kansas City.
St. Andrew’s Parish Choir is a worship music leadership team that sings 52 weeks yearly. Membership is by audition to all who have sung in a choir, have pitch recall, work toward rhythmic accuracy, and want to serve St. Andrew’s weekly at the 10 a.m. service, attend all scheduled rehearsals, and additional opportunities to serve as scheduled. Rehearsals are Wednesday, 7-8:15 p.m., September through May.
St. Andrew’s Singers
St. Andrew’s Singers is a music leadership team. This choir sings Evensong, Christmas Eve Midnight Mass, Holy Week Services, other services, and special events as scheduled. Membership is by audition and membership in the Parish Choir. Rehearsals are Wednesday, 6:15-7 p.m., September through may, and at other times as needed.
Our Choral Evensong is a moving experience including Scripture readings, psalms, canticles, and prayers. As Evensong was offered over the centuries, composers created beautiful settings of the prayers and canticles, as well as writing anthems for these worship experiences. The ancient rhythms of this service take us out of our day-to-day stresses and worries, freeing us to hear the voice of God.
Sunset Concert Series
These events combine worship, fellowship, and fun as we pray, sing, and celebrate our common life! Examples include Irish Pub Night, Feast of the First Tomato with our famous BLTs, Oktoberfest with brats and beer, and December’s offering of A Christmas Carol.
