Music Ministry

Music Director, Antonia Nedder

There are many ways to get involved in our music ministry at St. Bartholomew! Our Choirs are a vibrant part of our liturgies and have participated at parish and community events such as the St. Bart’s Pancake Breakfast with Santa, Needham Interfaith Services, and the Needham Blue Tree Lighting. Our Choir programs run from September through June, and our cantor/instrumentalist opportunities continue year round.
