Choir

The music at The Sacred Table (Sundays 9:00am) is led by our SATB choir, under the direction of organist and choirmaster Patrick Dewell. Professionally-trained section leads help us to explore a wide range of Anglican church music. We meet every Sunday morning (September to June) at 8:00 to rehearse for the 9:00 service. Our weekly repertoire consists of congregational hymns, plainchant psalms and canticles, and a variety of choral anthems, introits, and motets.

New members are welcome!  To arrange for an audition, please contact Patrick: pdewell@sjym.ca

For your interest
The organ at SJYM is a unique hybrid instrument that combines original pipework by Casavant with digital and MIDI enhancements by Walker. It features 3 manuals, 7 divisions, 61 speaking stops, and 74 ranks.  Organ preludes and postludes are musical fixtures at The Sacred Table, and occasionally throughout the year our organist delights us with a recital. Check the events calendar if you’d like to attend!

Youth Choir

Anyone under the age of 18 is welcome to join our youth choir. We meet for a half-hour on Sunday mornings, beginning at 10:00. No experience is required! Our conductor is Dani Loach, our alto section lead and an assistant director with the Canadian Children’s Opera Chorus. Patrick Dewell accompanies.
