Community Choir

Choristers are taught music literacy and singing skills and receive training in all areas of musicianship.  Each choir is given regular opportunities for performance.  Every four years, the Senior Choir transforms into the St. Peter’s Community Art Academy Tour Choir and members have an opportunity to travel to Europe to perform.  Our next European Tour is being planned for February 2022.  The Community Children’s Choirs have been under the direction of Wendra Trowbridge since 1996.  Mrs. Trowbridge is an alumna of Ithaca College School of Music, and currently teaches voice at Hobart and William Smith Colleges as well as St. Peter’s Community Arts Academy.

The Community Choir rehearsals schedules are as follows:

St. Nicholas Choir: Tuesday 4:15-5:00

Junior Choir: Wednesday 4:00 – 5:00 pm
Senior Choir: Wednesday from 5:15 – 6:30 pm
Adult Mixed Choir: Wednesdays from 7:30 – 9:00 pm

The Adult Mixed Choir’s primary purpose is to sing at St. Peter’s Episcopal Church worship services and at the annual “Sounds of Christmas” and “Spring Sing” concerts.  Many community members join the choir for their Good Friday performances, featuring major works by John Rutter, Gabriel FauréBob Chilcott, and G. F. Handel.  The Adult Choir is directed by St. Peter’s Church parish musician MaryAnn “Molly” Hamilton.
