Choir during The Annunciation Mass

St. Joseph’s Music Ministry is directed by Nelda Chapman. The Music Ministry hosts two choirs at St. Joseph’s, numerous musical events throughout the year including Third Thursday Organ Interludes (organ recitals performed by various organists from the local area during the school year months on third Thursdays of the month), and the annual performances of Handel’s Messiah by the Choral Society of Middle Georgia during the days leading up to Christmas. St. Joseph’s Church pipe organ uses over 3,000 pipes to make some of the most beautiful music in middle Georgia. Described as a building with the best acoustics in the area, St. Joseph’s Church produces some of the grandest, majestic, and heavenly sounds, and lends itself to the worship and adoration of God.      

St. Joseph’s Choir sings regularly during the 9:30 am Sunday Mass, with rehearsals normally on Wednesday evenings at 7:15 pm in the Choir Loft of the Church.

The Canticum Novum and Schola regularly sing at the 2:00 pm Latin Mass on the last Sunday of each month with rehearsals normally at 1:30 pm (preceding the Latin Mass) in the Choir Loft of the Church.
