Music at St. Stephen’s
Members of St. Stephen’s enjoy music that engages us more deeply in worship and community. We look forward to singing hymns on Sunday and to listening to our all-volunteer choir – which sings every week from September through May. In addition to Sunday Worship singing, St. Stephen’s Choir regularly performs concerts and Evensong services for the Armonk community and beyond.
We are blessed to have Music Director James Turner as our organist and choirmaster. James comes from near Birmingham, England, where he sang and first studied organ at a local church. He held various positions as organist, chorus accompanist, and choir master until his job took him, and his wife Claire, to South Africa in 1996, and then to New York in 1999. In his life outside the church, James is a chartered accountant (an English CPA), and the father of two children.
During the choir’s summer break, we sing our favorite hymns, and occasionally have special guests perform or sing.
As a community of faith, we are especially mindful of St. Augustine’s belief that those who sing, pray twice. And we do a lot of singing!
