Celebration of the Arts Concert Series
Bells, Ringing & Tower Clock
Diverse music of a high standard is greatly valued at St Jude’s in its liturgies and as a means of reaching out to the community. In addition to music’s central role in services through its two choirs and occasional instrumentalists, the vitality of St Jude’s music program is evident in Jazz Vespers, Evensong, and the Celebration of the Arts series, in which choristers have performed larger choral works such as Vivaldi’s Gloria and joined with groups like Intrada Brass. Special services and other events can extend at times into its lush garden or Victoria Hall, broadening their scope.
Some of St Jude’s popular musical traditions include the annual spring concert, December Lessons and Carols service, and a caroling outreach in Oakville neighbourhoods, where parishioners join with choir members to spread Christmas cheer. With its musical excellence, St Jude’s is positioned as a thriving faith-based arts centre for the broader community, in keeping with the music program’s core mission of embodying and encouraging the love of Christ through music for its congregation and beyond.
