Music has always played an important role in the worship life of St. Michael’s Church. With two RSCM & Kodály based children’s choral ensembles, a high school choir, and an adult choir that features some of New York’s elite professional singers, the music program explores literature that spans the past millennia and multiple cultures during the Sunday morning 10:00 am Holy Eucharist, and at Choral Compline on Wednesday evenings at 8:30pm.
Acoustically and aesthetically, St. Michael’s is one truly of New York’s premier performance spaces. The church houses two fine tracker-action pipe organs built in 1967 by the Rudolf von Beckerath Organ Company (Hamburg, Germany), and a newly restored 1938 Steinway model B grand. Together with the superb acoustics of the church building and the great stain-glass & mosaic masterworks by Louis C. Tiffany, St. Michael’s is an extraordinary space for worship and music.
