St. Andrew The Apostle Choir Kickoff Rehearsal!

This Thursday September 8 at 7:30pm (in the Church) St. Andrew The Apostle Parish is resurrecting the choir! We will be holding our first/kickoff rehearsal next Thursday, September 8, starting at 7:30pm, in the Church. If you are at all interested, please just come out to our first rehearsal. All are invited regardless of musical background. A special call to all of those who do have some musical background and experience to come out and provide the core foundation and leadership for our choir: be assured that there will be learning and growth for all in multiple respects, that your leadership will be essential to our success, and that the rest of the Choir will follow, live up to and strive to meet the standards that you set. We are striving for a substantial, 40 member (minimum) choir that is solidly in place and up and running as soon as possible so that we can provide incredible music for both Advent and Christmas this year. Any questions at all in the interim, please feel free to contact our new Music Director: Peter Smith (202) 492-3022

Children’s Choir

The Children’s Choir includes children in grades 3-8. The group sings for Parish Masses and School Masses, during the year.  There is also an opportunity for Faith Formation students to be part of the Sunday morning choir.  If you have a child who might be interested in joining, please contact Theresa Trigiani at


This is the only part of the music ministry for which one must audition.  Cantors lead the parish in song at Masses when a choir is not scheduled.  On the weekends, these Masses are generally at the 5:00 pm. Vigil Mass and the 8:30am Sunday morning Mass.  If you are interested in this ministry, please contact Karen Rappaport at (240) 252-9219 or at
