The St Andrew's Chancel Choir, made up of experienced members, meets once a week and for occasional extra rehearsals. They represent one of the most important faces of the church since music is such an integral part of the services.
New members are enthusiastically welcomed! Those wishing to schedule an audition or learn more about the choir may contact Anna Briscoe .
Our Chancel Choir has been blessed with these gifted voices:
Soprano: Sophia LuCurto, Rachel Parker
Alto: Mirella Lief, Mary Lee Carver
Tenor: Jim Briscoe
Bass: Hampton Carver, Don Messer (Assistant Organist)
The Perkins Ringers was founded about 16 years ago when Robert and Mary Perkins first came to St. Andrew's Church. Bob, who passed away in 2022 was an accomplished organist and choirmaster has degrees from Syracuse University and Union Theological Seminary in New York. Mary is retired after 36 years of teaching and serving as principal in Louisiana public schools.
The group grew steadily over the years to as many as a dozen members; many of them professional musicians. In addition to playing regularly at St. Andrew's, the group has also played at "Back Around the Clock" and the Poydras Home.
Father Dee and the Holy Jam
On the first Sunday of the month, our own Father Dee Fleming and the Holy Jam offer music during the Sunday 6 PM Mass with Karl Harrod on the piano. Selections are varied but have a jazzy flavor that we know you'll enjoy and which aids our joyful 6 PM Mass.
