The St. George's Choir
St. George's Church has a rich musical tradition that has included notable musicians such as Harry T. Burleigh, Antonín Dvořák, and E. Power Biggs, to a name a few. But throughout St. George's musical history, the Choir has been central to its worship and musical programs, and has encouraged participation from both church parishioners and those in the greater community. Composed of professional section leaders and amateur choir members, the Choir sings weekly at the Sunday 10am service, and various concerts and events throughout the year.
