Music Groups

All Saints is a wonderfully musical parish: we have an abundance of musical talent, and our round church is a fabulous space for musical performances by the All Saints' choir as well as vocal and instrumental musical groups, listed below, who regularly perform in our space.  (The music groups are not a part of the church, but perform at All Saints.)

Group Description More
All Saints' Choir The parish choir of over twenty members sings for Sunday and festival liturgies, as well as the annual Advent Lessons & Carols.  During the choir season (September though May) the choir rehearses on Thursday evenings and at 9:15am just before the Sunday 10am service. More
Stanford Talisman We are a group of singers dedicated to the sharing of stories through music. Talisman was created to explore and perform substantive, cultural music.

We appreciate the great challenge in musically expressing the genuine roots of the songs we sing, but we are committed to bringing these songs to life as best our abilities allow. More
