Join us as we sing together in glorious praise of our Lord.

Ask any parishioner what is special about this church and music is sure to be among the top three responses. Our congregation deeply appreciates the Anglican choral tradition.  Our exceptional music program is directed by John Widmann. As Organist and Choirmaster, John leads an excellent choir consisting of both volunteers and professionals in exquisite settings of hymns, anthems, and other sacred music. On special occasions such as Easter and Christmas Eve, the choir is augmented with professional instrumentalists.

The St. Francis Choir is comprised of amateur and professional musicians, and participates in Sunday services on a weekly basis. We rehearse weekly and welcome new singers and musicians.  If you are interested in joining the choir, please contact John Widmann,

The Assisi Chamber Singers are professional musicians who participate in our services periodically throughout the year.

We also happily provide opportunities for our youngest parishioners to sing several times a year. All children who are able to read are invited to join the children’s choir. Please contact John for more information.

We present many other musical offerings throughout the year, including guest soloists, organ recitals, community orchestras, Christmas Carol singalongs, and Sunday School singers, to name a few.  We have hosted a live concert by the Oxford University men’s a capella group Out of the Blue and several concerts by the Trinity Chamber Orchestra.   If you are interested in participating or performing here at St. Francis, please let us know!


The choir meets from 7:30 – 9:00 p.m. on Thursday evenings. Generally, this occurs during the school year. Our last Sunday with the full choir this season will be Trinity Sunday, June 4, 2023.
