Anglican Singers

St. James is blessed to host The Anglican Singers, an independently organized choir-in-residence which is dedicated to the English choral tradition. The Anglican Singers have been artists-in-residence since 1997 and sing the majority of Evensong services each year at St. James Church, as well as the annual Service of Lessons and Carols for Advent.  This past summer the choral group was the choir in residence for two weeks at Exeter and Truro Cathedrals in Cornwall, England.

Members of this auditioned 30 member group are directed by Simon Jacobs with organist Simon Holt. Click here to learn more about this talented organization.
