St. Aidan’s has a strong music program guided by our Minister of Music, Sara Banta. Well-known to the community as Professor of Music at Pepperdine and Minister of Music at St. Aidan's, Ms. Banta has served at St. Aidan’s Church for fourteen years. During this time the program has grown to include special services such as Evensong, Lessons and Carols, and Holiday Concerts. On special occasions, Ms. Banta organizes and leads a bell choir and children’s choir.
The St. Aidan’s choir is sometimes augmented with student singers and/or professional musicians. As part of the ongoing musical work-study program at St. Aidan's Episcopal Church,. Ms. Banta once again has taken four choral scholars under her wing. Their beautiful work adds a very special dimension to all of our services and, apart from classroom study, gives them a little extra experience in front of a live and a very appreciative audience each Sunday at the church.
The Choir Group always welcomes and encourages parishioners to join its ranks, no matter what their level of musical accomplishment.
