Music at St. Anne’s
St. Anne’s Concert Series
St. Anne’s Church is known for its exemplary music program and this free concert series is a big part of it. There are two separate programs–one in the spring and one in the fall. Through this series, we bring to Annapolis the best musicians in the region. The church itself boasts the finest acoustics in the area as well as one of the finest pipe organs. So, if you like music – music of all kinds – join us!
All Thursday Concerts begin at 6:15 PM at St. Anne’s Church (Church Circle, Annapolis).
No tickets required for these special nights! Come as you are, pay as you can.
Under the direction of conductor, J. Ernest Green, our Adult Choir is composed of over 50 members. The Adult Choir provides most of the music for our 9:30 AM and 11:00 AM worship services. Rehearsals are on Thursday evenings at 7:30 PM in the Skylight Room of the Parish House.

Church Circle Choristers
This interfaith ensemble consists of treble voices, including boys with unchanged voices ages 8+. Choristers rehearse weekly on Wednesday from 5:30-6:30 PM and lead worship once a month at our Saturday and Sunday 5:30 PM services.
At St. Anne’s Church, we are blessed to have a thriving musical culture; and this city–wide children’s choir is part of our vision to keep our hearts and doors open to the greater Annapolis community. Our diverse choral repertoire consists of music from the Anglican choral tradition as well as other cultural and global musical traditions. We offer a hands-on, educationally-focused approach tailored to each singer’s needs to build musical and leadership skills that will last a lifetime!
By participating in the choir, choristers gain training in vocal technique, music theory and aural skills that are compatible with studying an instrument, singing in additional choirs or furthering their vocal studies.
Join us for an exciting season of soulful singing and help us expand our musical mission further into the community! The Choristers have a vibrant year ahead with leading music at St. Anne’s Church and performances at the National Cathedral, Maryland Hall for the Creative Arts, and an exciting collaboration with the Peabody Preparatory Harp Ensemble.
