Music is central to worship at the Church of the Epiphany. The beautiful Norman-inspired architecture of the nave provides excellent acoustics for all voices – both the volunteer and professional singers in the Epiphany Choir, and the young singers in our Epiphany Choristers and Cherub Choir. Volunteers are welcome in these three choirs without audition. Rehearsals are Thursday evenings, September through May. We also have eight professionals who sing in our Evensong Choir.
If you or your child would like to be a part of a choir, or for more information, please email Larry J. Long, Organist & Choirmaster.
Go to our Instruments page for information about our Aeolian-Skinner pipe organ and Mason and Hamlin grand piano.
