I will sing and make melody. Awake, my soul! (Psalm 108.1)
We lift our voices in song to praise God. We bring hope and joy to the people of Saint Joan of Arc as we open our hearts to the message of Jesus in the world. We are a strong and supportive community for our members. The Saint Joan of Arc choir is a special liturgy and events choir that ministers monthly at Sunday services and for Holy Week, Easter, Christmas and the Martin Luther King concert. We perform with professional artists in the Concert Series and have enjoyed recording with well-known Twin Cities musicians. On occasion we join our voices with neighboring choirs for events and concerts.
