St. Gabriel's Parish Choir
The Parish Choir is our principal choir and provides music for each 10:30 Rite II service, for festival services, and other special occasions. The Choir is comprised of twenty two talented and intrepid singers, several of whom are gifted instrumentalists as well. It is an honor and a privilege to get to make music together every week with each other to the glory of God. We always have extra folders handy and welcome new members or visiting singers.

This group started a few years ago as a summer program for anyone who wanted to learn more about reading music. It evolved into a multi-generation choir chime program, made possible by the loan of hand bells and choir chimes from our friends at St. Edward's Episcopal Church in Lawrenceville. Funds have been given in memory of Tony Rothschild for the purchase of our own 3-octave set of choir chimes! We are experimenting with a new rehearsal day and time and the time noted above may change. Please be sure to check the Choir website and calendar for the most current information. If you need additional information or would like to join this group, please contact Gregory Thompson.
Children's Music Program
The Children's Music Program is geared to children from the 1st-5th grades and meets after the 10:30 service on Sundays for 30 minutes. (We give them a few minutes to grab a snack and take a few runs at the playground, then class is typically from 12:00-12:30). In addition to singing, the children play small percussion instruments, drums, and hand bells. They sing 4 - 5 times at Rite II and other special services throughout the academic year.
Great friends, great times, great music.
