The human voice is the most moving instrument of them all.  Because of this simple beauty, and following the example of ancient Christianity, Orthodox Christian music is all vocal, save perhaps an organ in scattered parishes.  Orthodox musical traditions include some of the very finest choral music from both east and west, and some of the oldest hymns in Christendom.

Not surprisingly, the choir is a special ministry in our church.  Many unique voices are needed for harmony, and new voices are always welcome at Saint Mary.  Orthodox Christians interested in singing in the choir can contact Saint Mary choir director, Mimi Oldenhuis.


Saint Mary has cds for sale featuring recorded hymns by Saint Mary Choir, as well as selected songs from talented vocalist, and Saint Mary chanter, Mark David.  CDs can be purchased at Saint Mary’s Bookstore. All proceeds go back to the choir ministry.  Sample tracks below:
