Our accomplished and talented Director of Music Jesse Nathan Glaude leads our diverse, high-quality music program which includes our choir, a series of chamber music concerts and the Christ Church School of the Arts.

We enjoy making music and providing our skilled musicians with opportunities to develop and share their gifts with us.

In our worship we use the 1982 Hymnal, supplemented by the African-American hymnal, Lift Every Voice and Sing, and the 1982 supplement, Wonder, Love and Praise.
