music at st. paul's

Music at St. Paul's is a vital, self-sustaining component of St. Paul's music ministry. Celebrating its twenty-fifth season, this annual series of special services and musical events brings to St. Paul's guest ensembles and artists who, through words and music, proclaim the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. This music series benefits the members of St. Paul's and serves as an outreach to the greater St. Louis community. In addition, Music at St. Paul's sponsors the music for some of the festival services in the regular worship life of our congregation and provides enrichment for the overall music ministry of our parish.

Unless otherwise noted, there is no admission fee. A freewill offering is collected at each event to support this ministry.
