Music at St. Martin’s

Music Ministry at St. Martin’s invites you to join us in offering our hearts and hands and voices as servants of God to inspire and uplift all those who enter these doors. As Jesus instructed his disciples to stay in the city, we join together from a wide radius to minister through music from the center of Austin.

May the Holy Spirit inspire you to join us by singing, ringing, playing, or simply by listening.  We welcome you to join us!

Open to all choral singers, high school age to adult, who can carry a vocal part and commit to regular rehearsals on Wednesday evenings, 7:00 – 8:30.

Youth & Children’s Music

Youth & Children’s Music is at a crossroads in learning what works best for our St. Martin’s families. We will be experimenting with some possible ensembles and music participation this year as we re-develop this program. We hope to hear from families about ideas and possibilities that would work for them. Contact any of the directors.
